Lottery jackpot win for Yate neighbours

SIX Yate neighbours are in the money after winning a lottery jackpot.

The residents of Wentworth, off Sundridge Park, won £1,000 each when their postcode, BS37 4DJ, was announced as a daily prize winner in the People’s Postcode Lottery on August 2.

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, 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 Wentworth residents, whose win came two months after residents of another street a few hundred yards away won the same prize.

The eight Woodmancote residents won £1,000 each at the beginning of June.

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.

The draw won by the Wentworth residents was promoted by Depaul, a youth homelessness charity which has received more than £10.8 million in funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Funding applications are now being accepted by the People’s Postcode Lottery: visit or the lottery's Facebook and Twitter pages for more information.
