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 second time in 12 months.

The winning postcode sector for August's Postcode Millions has been revealed as CM14 5 and all players in the area are set to win a share of the £2 Million prize pot. Winners will discover just how much they have picked up at a special celebration on Saturday 30th August at King George's Playing Field, Hartswood Road, Brentwood.

Those playing with the full winning postcode, which will be revealed at the event, will take home the lion's share of the windfall.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Nicole Allan, Head of Events at People's Postcode Lottery, said, "We are delighted to be heading to Essex again to present players with some fantastic cheques. We were in Chelmsford last August and everyone had such a great time so I'm looking forward to going back, this time to Essex."

It's not just winners who benefit from People's Postcode Lottery. To date, our players have raised over £47.2 Million for good causes at home and abroad. Some charities that will be at the event include Dogs Trust, WaterAid, Battersea Dogs & Cat Home, Missing People, War Child, Riding for the Disabled Association and the National Trust.

People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador Judie McCourt said, "The excitement will be really building up in Essex this week. I'm really looking forward to surprising players with their winnings and finding out how they will spend the cash!"

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.

We will reveal more details regarding the party, including the minimum amount winners can expect to receive, in the coming days online and in the press. All winners will be contacted this week.
