Three neighbours in Colchester have got a thousand reasons to celebrate after waking up to the news that their lucky postcode has scooped People’s Postcode Lottery’s daily prize.

Thanks to the win, the Crepping Hall Road residents (postcode CO6 2AL) will find their bank accounts boosted by £1,000 each for every ticket they hold.

Congratulating the winners, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “It’s a truly terrific Tuesday for our players in Colchester. I couldn’t be more thrilled for them and hope they enjoy treating themselves with the windfall.”

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £350 million to date for 4,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

A number of local causes have benefitted from the money raised, and the next opportunity to apply for funding will be in January.
