"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 Maggie’s which has received more than £14.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Maggie’s runs a network of cancer support centres all over the UK.

These centres bring people together to help combat the isolation and distress that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis.

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