North-east residents are celebrating after bagging a grand each in the People’s Postcode Lottery.
Three residents of Binghill Crescent in Milltimber got their new year off to a flying start by pocketed the cash thanks to their postcode – AB13 0HU.
Their postcode was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday.
Meanwhile, six people in Brimmond Crescent in Westhill also netted a grand each, as did four neighbours on Bridge Street in Portknockie in Moray.
Danyl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, sent his well-wishes to the Aberdeen winners.
He said: “Congratulations to all the players winning in today’s daily prize! Great news to hear on a Friday, I hope you enjoy spending your winnings!”
A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities, meaning players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600 million to date for thousands of good causes across Britain and beyond.
The draw was promoted on behalf of WaterAid which has received almost £16 million worth of funding. The charity works to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
