A total of ten people are holding major celebrations after winning special Christmas presents in the form of a lottery win.
The six winners in Sully each took home a £1,000 cash prize, thanks to their postcode. The Nailsea Court neighbours earned the Christmas bonus when their postcode, CF64 5SQ, was drawn as the Daily Prize winner in the People’s Postcode Lottery on the 27th of December, 2019.
In sending well wishes to the six winners, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson said, “What a brilliant surprise to get just after Christmas! Congratulations to our winners in Sully.”
The People’s Postcode Lottery has raised more than £500 million to date, with a minimum of 32% of ticket sales going directly to charities. Thousands of good causes in the United Kingdom and beyond have benefited from the proceeds of this lottery. This draw that was won by the Sully residents was promoted by War Child, an organisation that has received more than £11.3 million in funding from the players of the lottery. War Child works for the protection, education, and upholding the rights of children in areas affected by conflict.
In Seaford, two people received an extra Christmas bonus, also taking home £1,000 each when their postcode, BN25 3EZ was announced as the Daily Prize winner right on Christmas eve, December 24. The People’s Postcode Lottery in the area, Judie McCourt sent a congratulatory message to the two winners, saying: “Merry Christmas to our winners. What a brilliant way to celebrate the festive season.”
Two more individuals became the lucky winners of £1,000 cash prize when NP22 5HL was drawn as the Daily Prize winner, also on Christmas eve, but this time in Rhymney. Their lucky postcode, just like the one in Seaford, came just in time for the Vale Road and Church Street neighbours to have a grand Christmas celebration.
And just as she did for the Seaford winners, Judie McCourt also sent her well wishes and congratulatory message to the Rhymney winners. Additionally, the Rhymney draw was also promoted by War Child, just as the Sully draw was. Besides the beneficiaries of War Child and the winners themselves, there have also been a lot of good causes that have benefited from players’ support of the lottery. These benefits will continue to be handed out, with the next opportunity for local charities to apply for funding set for early 2020.
The recent winners from Sully, Seaford, and Rhymney are not the only ones who have been blessed with windfall from the People’s Postcode Lottery. Countless players from across the United Kingdom have won amazing prizes, with thousands of lucky winners each week. In the subscription lottery alone, thousands of players pay £10 each month for the opportunity to win cash prizes every single day. And every weekend, two postcodes are drawn, with the winners collecting £30,000 cheques from the chosen celebrity Street Prize presenters. The beauty of this lottery lies in the fact that the more players participate, the more charities benefit.
