There's a lot of luck for Nottingham residents this month as People's Postcode Lottery announces today that players in the area will share a prize pot of £2 Million.

The winning postcode sector in the April Postcode Millions has been revealed as NG8 5.People's Postcode Lottery players in that winning postcode sector are set to share a fantastic £2 Million prize pot. Winners will discover just how much they have won at a celebration on Saturday 2nd May at The Nottingham Belfry, Mellor's Way, off Woodhouse Way.

Those playing with the full winning postcode, which will be revealed at the event, will walk away with the lion's share of the prize pot.

It's not just winners who benefit from playing People's Postcode Lottery. To date players have raised over £66.4 Million for charities and good causes, including Canal & River Trust, British Red Cross, Missing People, Girlguiding, The Wildlife Trusts and the Riding for the Disabled Association.

One local organisation that has received funding from People's Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery, is Groundwork Greater Nottingham. The charity received £7,358 from players for their Dig in Stay out Machinery project.

Groundwork Greater Nottingham is a committed regeneration charity set up in 1990 that works to improve the quality of life for people in the most disadvantaged areas of Greater Nottingham. The charity delivers horticulture, heritage and environmental education in schools and communities. Funding from players enabled the charity to purchase tools and machinery needed for horticultural training and rehabilitation programmes for young ex-offenders.

People's Postcode Lottery ambassador, Judie McCourt, will be on hand in Nottingham to present the eagerly awaiting players with their winning cheques. Judie said,"Congratulations to all of our lucky Postcode Millions winners in Nottingham. I am looking forward to handing out lots of lovely cheques and I'm sure the winners are even more excited to see how much they have won!"
