£1 Million Prize

Dartford Millionaire Street

18 November 2023 - DA1 4SF - Dartford - £1 Million

Five people in Dartford, Kent are celebrating after landing a share of today's Millionaire Street prize.

Each of the neighbours on Craymill Square netted a £200,000 cheque when DA1 4SF was revealed as the full winning postcode.

As our lucky winners weren't available to receive their cheques in person, their prize money will be paid directly into their bank accounts.

Local Charities Also Benefit

Following the neighbours' wins, nearby charities will also benefit. A combined total of £1 Million is being shared between local charities in the winning Millionaire Street areas as part of November's Postcode Lottery draws.

An award of £25,000 has thrown a lifeline to one charity who feared they may have had to shut their food bank, hitting thousands of people and families in the area.

Howbury Friends, based in Erith, Bexley, feed more than 2,000 people every week. But soaring demand, low supplies and rising food costs threatened to shut their doors before Christmas.

But, with help from Players of People's Postcode Lottery, they will now be able to stay open through the winter.

Melanie Hudson, Community Project Coordinator, single-handedly oversees the running of the charity's food bank. She also organises numerous community groups including daily after-school activities, football groups, two weekly over-70s food clubs and half-term activities such as cookery classes.

Melanie said, "Funding raised by the players of the People's Postcode Lottery will make a huge difference to our work.

"Earlier this week we feared we wouldn't be able to open the food bank due having such low supplies. This funding will enable us to be able to keep the food bank full of food over the winter months and support vital appeals for coats and jumpers this Christmas."

She added, "In these times of austerity we're one of the only lifelines for people in the area. We have up to 300 people visit our food bank daily. This equates to us feeding over 2,000 people in one week. In one day, we can give out up to 70 loaves of bread and essential items such as packets of pasta. It is a huge pressure to feed your own family, let alone a community."

People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Jeff Brazier said, "It's definitely a Saturday to remember for five of our players in Dartford, it's a truly life-changing sum.

"And it's amazing to see Howbury Friends will also receive funding alongside local charities after the neighbour's postcode landed the Millionaire Street prize."

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

  • Crossroads Care South East London - £50,000 A charity supporting all unpaid carers, both children and adults, and older people. Some of their services include respite care, an independent living service and community social activities.

  • Re-Instate - £50,000 This charity works to improve employment opportunities, as well as quality of life for disadvantaged people in the London Borough of Bexley. This includes people experiencing mental ill-health, those with learning disabilities, autistic adults, and young people.

  • Home Start North West Kent - £25,000 Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families living in social and economic deprivation.

  • Active Horizons - £50,000 A youth-led organisation established to encourage leadership in young people aged 13-25 years living in the London Borough of Bexley. They promote the voice of disadvantaged young people, particularly from the black, ethnic and minority community.

  • Bexley Voluntary Service Council - £25,000 BVSC is an infrastructure organisation supporting both the smallest and larger charities in Bexley by offering guidance, training, and funding.

All funding was awarded by Postcode Society Trust (opens in a new tab).
