He said: “Congratulations to our winners.

"I’m sure this news has made their day and I hope they treat themselves to something nice with 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 Woodland Trust which has received more than £13.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

It is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, owning more than 1,000 different woods across the country.

These woods support a wide range of plants and wildlife and attract thousands of visitors each year.

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