£1 Million Prize

Northampton Millionaire Street

02 March 2024 - NN3 3JE - Northampton - £1 Million

Boxing legend Frank Bruno's charity has landed a knockout cash award - because three people shared a £1 Million People's Postcode Lottery prize.

The neighbours each won £333,333 in Northampton after NN3 3JE bagged our weekly Millionaire Street prize today.

The players' windfalls mean local charities have also benefited from a cash boost in the area - including The Frank Bruno Foundation, which has been awarded £50,000 by Postcode Community Trust.

Glove & Money

The former WBC heavyweight champ, 62, set up the Northampton-based charity in 2017 because of his own mental health struggles.

Frank MBE, who famously fought Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis, wanted to provide help to support those experiencing or recovering from early-stage mental ill-health.

In an interview 10 years ago, he said, "Mental illness is a terrible thing to have to cope with but I've learnt it's a fight you can win if you live your life the right way."

Now his Foundation team are fighting to beat the stigma that still surrounds mental health issues and say the award will give them more clout.

James Wright, Mental Health and Wellbeing Co-ordinator, said, "The funding we've been awarded from Postcode Community Trust is hugely significant and will allow us to strengthen and widen our programme offering to make a greater positive impact within the local community.

"Despite the shift in attitudes over the last few years, there is still a strong stigma associated with mental health issues.

"The Frank Bruno Foundation aims to combat this by providing a safe space for its service users to speak openly about their experiences with mental health."

One of the charity's main initiatives is the Round by Round programme that offers wellbeing workshops and structured non-contact boxing sessions for anyone over the age of 10. It also gives clients the tools and techniques to help manage their own mental health.

James said, "The aim of the foundation is to bring healthy-body and healthy-mind approaches together to support all service users with mental ill health."

He added, "Thanks to the funding received today, we can maintain our services, roll out new programmes into our foundation and more importantly, we can support more young people who will benefit from our charity."

Other charities in the area receiving funding thanks to Saturday's Millionaire Street prize win include:

  • Prader-Willi Syndrome Association UK - £70,000 A small charity providing lasting support to people with Prader-Willi Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, and their families and carers.
