FOUR people in Shipley had a thousand reasons to celebrate today after they woke up to the news that their lucky postcode, BD18 2PB, had landed them the Daily Prize with People’s Postcode Lottery.

The West Royd Avenue neighbours will see their bank accounts boosted by £1,000 each for every ticket that they play with thanks to the win.

Sending her congratulations, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “I couldn’t be more pleased for all our players in Shipley who have picked up a prize today!

"With Christmas just around the corner I’m sure that the windfall will come in very handy.”

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £361 million to date for 4,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

Many good causes local to the winners have benefitted from the money raised, and the next opportunity to apply for funding will be in February.

The maximum amount a single ticket can win is 10% of the draw revenue to a maximum of £400,000.

This prize was part of the draw promoted by NSPCC.
