Excitement In Essex
Basildon community shares prize thanks to People's Postcode Lottery
November 18th, 2014
Winners will be celebrating in Essex this week as People's Postcode Lottery has today announced that players in the area will share a prize pot of £2 Million, for the third time in 15 months.
The winning postcode sector has been revealed as SS13 2, and all People's Postcode Lottery players in the area are set to win a share of the £2 Million prize. Winners will discover just how much they have won at a celebration on Saturday 29th November at Towngate Theatre, St Martin's Square.
Those playing with the full winning postcode, which will be revealed at the event, will take home the lion's share of the £2 Million prize.
It's not just players of People's Postcode Lottery who benefit from playing. To date, players have raised over £53.8 Million for charities and good causes. Charities attending the event will include Dementia Adventure, Depaul UK, Riding for the Disabled Association and Dogs Trust.
This is not the first time a Postcode Millions event has landed in Essex. Last August, players in Chelmsford shared a prize of £2 Million and this August, it was a community in Brentwood who shared the £2 Million cash pot.
People's Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said, "Luck certainly must come in threes in Essex! We always have a great time when we come to Essex, and I'm sure this event won't disappoint. Congratulations to all players coming to the event on Saturday 29th November. I can't wait to see you there and give you all your cheques."
More details on the party and the minimum amount winners will receive will be revealed in the coming days online and in the press.Return to news archive
