Scarborough residents are jumping for joy as People's Postcode Lottery has announced today that players in the area will share an incredible £2 Million in the May Postcode Millions.
Players living in winning postcode sector YO11 3 will be giddy with anticipation. They'll discover exactly how much they have won at a celebration on Saturday 30th May at Scarborough Spa, South Bay.
The event will see players' excitement building, as the fulling winning postcode will only be revealed at the end of the party. Those players in the winning postcode will scoop the greatest share of the whopping prize fund.
This is not the first time the big prize has landed in Scarborough. Players in YO12 5 shared a cool £1 Million at a celebration in September 2010. More recently, in February, four players were Daily Prize winners, scooping £1,000 for every ticket they played when postcodes in the area were drawn.
People's Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt will be on hand in Scarborough to present the players with their winning cheques. She said, "Congratulations to all of the lucky winners of May's Postcode Millions in Scarborough. I'm sure you are all looking forward to discovering how much you have won!"
It isn't just the players in Scarborough who benefit from People's Postcode Lottery. So far, players have raised an incredible £69.2 Million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.
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 the Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team. The organisation, a volunteer search and rescue service, was awarded £9,000. Thanks to this funding, the team were able to purchase waterproofs and climbing helmets, which are vital pieces of equipment for people working in inhospitable environments in adverse weather conditions.
