Eight neighbours in a Corby street are celebrating after winning on the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Monday has been anything but blue for the Stamford Walk residents after they woke up £1,000 better off.

They all landed the sum when their NN18 9HR postcode was announced as a daily prize winner today (February 25).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt said: “I don’t think there’s any better way to kick-start your week than by winning the lottery, so a big well done to everyone picking up a prize today in Corby.

“I hope they spoil themselves with the windfall.”

The north of the county has been a lucky place to live over the past 12 months of the People’s Postcode Lottery draws.

In December three neighbours in Brigstock all won £1,000.

And in March last year two households in Irchester each scooped the £30,000 jackpot.

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of the People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £393m to date for 5,500 good causes.

This draw was promoted by Dogs Trust, which has received £9,563,452 in funding from players.

The next opportunity local charities will have to apply for funding is in August.
