Lottery win for Fishponds neighbours

FOUR neighbours are celebrating after winning a lottery windfall.

The neighbours in Clay Bottom each won £1,000 when their postcode, BS5 7HB, was announced as the daily prize winner of the People’s Postcode Lottery on September 27.

People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery which raises money for charities.

Players sign up, enter their postcode and pay £10 per month to take part.

They are automatically entered into a draw every day of the month, with prizes ranging from £10 to a share in a £3 million monthly draw.

There are £1,000 daily jackpots, such as the one won by the Clay Bottom residents.

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities, and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

The draw won by the Clay Bottom residents was promoted on behalf of Canal & River Trust, which has received more than £10 million from players.

The trust looks after 2,000 miles of canals and rivers across England and Wales.

Local charities can apply for funding when the next round opens next year.
