A number of people are starting off June with a smile as they have bagged an enviable £1,000 in the People’s Postcode Lottery.
The 14 people from across Gloucestershire were living in Lydney, Tewkesbury and Cheltenham when they won the prizes.
The five people in Lydney were lucky enough to pick up the prize of £1,000 each thanks to their postcode last Friday (May 29th).
The Tutnalls Street neighbours picked up the cash prize when GL15 5PQ was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery Daily Prize winner on Friday May 29.
Sending their well wishes to the lucky players was People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson, who said: “A huge congratulations to our winners in Lydney! I’m sure the windfall will help lift their spirits and I hope they can treat themselves to something special.”
