High Spirits In St. Helens
Players in WA9 5 are in for a treat, as they are set to share £3 Million
August 23rd, 2017
People's Postcode Lottery players in a St. Helens postcode sector are set to share an amazing £3 Million prize fund. Postcode sector WA9 5 has been drawn as the winner of August's Postcode Millions.
Winners will receive their invitations in the post today to attend an exciting event at Victoria Square on Saturday 2nd September. At this Postcode Millions party, players will find out exactly how much they have each won. The full winning postcode, where lucky players will scoop the largest shares of the prize pot, will also be revealed.
As a charity lottery, People's Postcode Lottery players support more than 3,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally. With a minimum of 31% going to charity, players have raised over £221 Million to date.
A number of projects around the winning postcode area have received support from players of People's Postcode Lottery. One of these is St. Helens Mind, which received £3,000 to operate a gardening allotment for their service users. Funding was awarded to build toilet facilities and enhance accessibility to the allotments for wheelchair users.
People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador Judie McCourt, who will be joining players on the day, said, "I can't wait to get to St. Helens and hand out some nice big cheques! I love meeting players of People's Postcode Lottery and Postcode Millions events are such fantastic celebrations. Good luck to everyone who plays in WA9 5!"
