Two people in Corby are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Elizabeth Street neighbours netted the windfall when NN17 1SA was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery today (Tuesday, March 31).

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

He said: “What great news to end the month! Congratulations to our winners, I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by Sightsavers which has received more than £3.9 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The organisation prevents sight loss and avoidable blindness in more than 30 countries and works with local communities to support people who need it most.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August.
