Postcode lottery win for lucky Chichester neighbours

Chichester neighbours celebrated last week after their lucky postcode netted them a windfall in the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Two Canal Wharf residents netted £1,000 each when their PO19 8EY postcode was announced as a Daily Prize winner last Monday (November 16).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.

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

This draw was promoted on behalf of the Postcode Community Trust which provides funding in Great Britain to improve community health and wellbeing, increase participation in arts and physical recreation and reduce isolation.

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