Coalpit Heath neighbours win lottery windfall

FIVE residents of a street in Coalpit Heath have won a cash windfall of £1,000 each in a fundraising lottery.

The residents of Roundways landed the windfall when BS36 2LU was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery winner today.

People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery which raises money for charities.

Players sign up, enter their postcode and pay £10 per month to take part.

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

There are £1,000 daily jackpots, such as the one won by the Roundways residents.

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

They include development charity ActionAid, which promoted today’s draw and has received more than £8.4 million in funding to change the lives of disadvantaged women and children all over the world.
