It's a lucky day for one player in Hackney who picked up a cheque for £30,000. The winner, who plays with postcode N16 8UX, scooped the cash in Saturday's Street Prize. Congratulations to our lucky winner - we hope you enjoy your windfall!
Local Charities Benefit Too
32% of the ticket price goes to charities and good causes. To date, players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised £427 Million for thousands of deserving projects across Great Britain as well as internationally.
The Zone Youth Project received £11,487 last year to run programmes with young homeless people, designed to improve their personal, social and life skills. The programme mixed outdoor education, creative media and the arts and introduced participants to local employers and further education providers to help them move into education, vocational training and employment.
Hackney wasn't the only area celebrating a big win this weekend. Three neighbours picked up £30,000 cheques in Sunday's Street Prize. The first of May's Postcode Millions also landed, bringing a £3 Million prize pot to players in one lucky postcode sector.
