FOUR residents in Wallasey had cause for celebration today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Cavendish Road neighbours netted the windfall when they were announced as Daily Prize winners with People’s Postcode Lottery.

The game's ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: "What a great surprise for our winners! I'm thrilled for them and I hope this news has made their day."

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by Depaul which has received over £10.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Depaul is a nationwide charity for youth homelessness, it works to tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for young people.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can now apply for funding.
