Five people in Maryport have scooped a £1,000 cash prize thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Buchanan Terrace neighbours scooped the windfall when CA15 7DS was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery today.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her congratulations and said: “What a way to kick-start the weekend for all our lucky winners in Maryport! I couldn’t be more pleased for them and hope they toast to their windfall over the weekend and treat themselves to something special.”

A minimum of 32% of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £486 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by NSPCC, which has received over £2.7 million in funding raised by players to support its mission of protecting children from abuse and providing support to those who have experienced it.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players support, and the next opportunity local charities will have to apply for funding will be early next year.
