TWO people in Ryde are celebrating a Christmas windfall after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Blackthorn Close neighbours netted the windfall when PO33 1HY was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery today (Wednesday).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners.

He said: “Brilliant news for all of our winners today in Ryde. Congratulations, I hope you enjoy spending the cash.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted on behalf of Youth Music which has received over £6.5 million worth of funding from the lottery. Youth Music is a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people experiencing challenging circumstances.
