Lucky People's Postcode Lottery players from Ellesmere are in for a weekend of celebrations after it was announced today that they'll be sharing November's Postcode Millions prize. The winning postcode sector SY12 0 was revealed in a Facebook Live video this evening. Lucky winners will find out exactly how much they've scooped on Saturday 30th November.
Winners will be invited to collect their cheques on Saturday morning. Prize amounts will be published in our Lottery Results section and on social media from 12 noon.
Prize amounts will vary depending on how many tickets players have and whether they are in the full winning postcode. Those playing with the full winning postcode will land the biggest prizes.
People's Postcode Lottery Presenters Danyl Johnson and Matt Johnson will be in Ellesmere on Saturday visiting some of the lucky winners.
Matt said, "I'm so looking forward to visiting Ellesmere. My fellow presenter Judie McCourt was here just over a year ago handing out cheques to six lucky winners, so I'm delighted that it's my turn to visit Ellesmere. It's going to be a great weekend for all our lucky players!"
Charities And Good Causes
With 32% of the ticket price going to good causes, players have raised more than £486 Million for thousands of Charities since 2005.
November's Postcode Millions is part of a draw promoted by Postcode Equality Trust. This funds charities and good causes that are working for a fairer world by addressing inequality in society through improvements in health, human rights, education and community development.
Local charities win too, and lots of good causes in Ellesmere have been supported with funding raised by players. Beechtree Community Centre was awarded £5,000 to provide local residents with the opportunity to participate in sports including new-age kurling and badminton.
