TWO residents of an east Dorset village are celebrating after netting £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

Neighbours in Birchwood Drive, Alderholt, cashed the prize money when their postcode of SP6 3AH was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday November 20.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “Congratulations to all of the winners, what a fantastic way to round off the week. I hope they have fun spending their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600 million 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.
