EIGHT residents of a street in Yate have won a cash windfall of £1,000 each in a fundraising lottery.

The residents of Woodmancote, off St Briavels Drive, landed the windfall when BS37 4LL was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery winner today.

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