Lucky Emneth seven share £240,000 People's Postcode Lottery cash
Residents in a West Norfolk village have gained an unexpected windfall today – thanks to where they live.
Seven Emneth neighbours started their weekend in style after winning £240,000 between them on the People’s Postcode Lottery.
The windfall comes after PE14 8BQ in Emneth was announced as a winner with the lottery today (Friday).
Six of the winners netted £30,000 while the seventh landed £60,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.
The winners, who live in the Elmside area, opted to remain anonymous.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Jeff Brazier said: “A big congratulations to our winners in Emneth today! What a great end to the week. I’m sure they’ll enjoy spending the cash and treat themselves to something special.”
Everyday throughout the November draws one postcode will be announced as a £30,000 prize winner. All the players in the postcode will win £30,000 for every ticket they hold.
People’s Postcode Lottery costs £10 a month to play and there are guaranteed winners every day. People play with their chosen postcode and are automatically entered into all draws.
Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have helped raise over £800 million to date for thousands of good causes across Britain and internationally.
This draw was promoted on behalf of Postcode Education Trust. The Trust supports charities and good causes which provide education, particularly in emergency situations, through regular grant funding. Supported charities include Book Aid International, Save The Children and UNICEF.
