FIVE neighbours in Poole are celebrating after being announced as winners of the People's Postcode Lottery.

The Old Farm Road residents have each picked up a cheque for £1,000 for every ticket they hold after scooping the daily prize on Thursday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt offered her congratulations and said: “Well done to all the winners in Poole! I’m sure they’ll have a fantastic time splashing out with the windfall. Make sure you’re playing with your postcode to be in with a chance of winning.”

A minimum of 32 per cent 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.
