SEVEN people in Ryedale are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Beckett Close neighbours in Nawton netted the windfall when YO62 7SB was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on May 13.

Danyl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, said: “What great news to start off your day. Congratulations to our winners, I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes to charities and players have raised more than £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by the NSPCC which has received over £3.9 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
