A GROUP of neighbours are celebrating after bagging £1,000 each.

14 residents of Thompson Avenue, Ainsworth, netted the cash when BL2 5RJ was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery today (Tuesday).

Each winner will be contacted by representatives from the lottery and presented with their winnings.

Following the draw, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners.

She said: “What great news to get along with your breakfast! Congratulations to our winners, I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 percent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £500m to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by Maggie’s which has received over £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.
