Five people in Derby are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Taverners Crescent neighbours netted the windfall yesterday (Tuesday) when DE23 6XT, on the outskirts of Littleover, was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners.
She said: “Congratulations to our winners! I’m thrilled for them and I’m sure this news has made their day.”
A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted on behalf of Canal and River Trust which has received more than £10 million in funding thanks to players. It cares for 2,000 miles of canals and rivers across England & Wales and believes waterways have the power to make a difference to people’s lives.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
