People's Postcode Lottery players set to celebrate £2 Million win
The sun is continuing to shine on players in Stirlingshire this
week, as People's Postcode Lottery has today announced that together locals have
won a £2 Million prize in the June Postcode Millions.
The winning postcode sector has been revealed as G63 0, with
all People's Postcode Lottery players in the area set to win a share of the £2 Million prize. Winners will discover just how much they
have won at a winner's celebration on Saturday 29th June. Those playing with
the full winning postcode will walk away with the lion's share of the winnings. This will be revealed at an event being held in the grounds of Balfron Primary School.
With winners from across the G63 0 postcode sector, Balfron
Primary School offers the perfect location. Events Manager Nicole Allan said: "We wanted to find a really central location for all our players to head to and
the primary school in Balfron is absolutely ideal. I can't wait to get
everything set up and see the excited faces of all the players at the event."
However, it's not just winners
who benefit from playing People's Postcode Lottery. Players have raised over
£28.6 Million for good causes and charities throughout Britain, including
Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres, CHILDREN 1ST and Scottish Wildlife
Trust, which operate throughout Scotland. Each of these charities have received
over £2 Million in support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.
Funding from players also supports a
range of projects in Stirlingshire. To
date over £283,000 has been awarded to 57 projects from People's Postcode
Trust, which is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by the players. Central
Scotland Forest Trust and Scottish Spina Bifida Association, both of which
operate in Stirlingshire, have each received £10,000 to develop their projects
People's Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: "It's fantastic that we are heading back to Scotland to see another community
share £2 Million – we had a great time in the Highlands at Christmas so it'll
be nice to be out in the Scottish sunshine for this year's June Postcode
Millions. I want to wish all the players a massive congratulations and good
luck! I look forward to seeing you all at Balfron Primary School on Saturday 29th
More details regarding the party, including the minimum amount won, will be revealed in the coming days.
