It's a September to remember for the St. Helens community as WA11 7 was today revealed by Matt Johnson in a Facebook Live video as the winning postcode sector of this month's Postcode Millions draw. Everyone who plays with a ticket in that sector will win a share of the £3 Million prize pot.
The lucky neighbours will find out exactly how much they've won on Saturday 28th September. Presenters Judie McCourt and Danyl Johnson and our People's Postcode Lottery Prize team will be knocking on doors to deliver cheques to some of our players. All our winners will have their prize amounts confirmed by letter on the day.
Prizes will vary depending on how many tickets players have, and if they're in the full winning postcode. Those in the full winning postcode will take home the largest shares of the prize pot.
Judie said, "Wow - I can't believe we're back in St. Helens for the third time in two years! I can't wait to meet all our lucky winners this time around. Good luck to everyone in the winning sector and we will see you soon!"
Thousands Of Good Causes
With 32% of the ticket price going to charity, players have raised over £474 Million for thousands of charities and good causes to date. This prize is part of a draw promoted on behalf of Postcode Dream Trust, which gives organisations the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life.
Local good causes have benefited from player support, too. Earlier this year, Four Estates near Liverpool received £18,188 to run music classes for young people with mental health issues. This project will help them overcome anxiety and depression as well as improve their communication and engagement skills.
