LUCKY residents in Ellesmere are set to receive a share of a huge £3 million prize pot.

Residents who play the People's Postcode Lottery (PPL), and who live in the SY12 0 area, will each win a share of the amazing prize after it was revealed as the winning postcode sector in the lottery’s November Postcode Millions prize draw via Facebook Live.

But the lucky winners will have to wait to find out exactly how much they have scooped until Saturday, when PPL ambassadors Matt Johnson and Danyl Johnson will be in Ellesmere visiting some of the lucky winners.

Prize amounts will vary depending on how many tickets players have and whether they are in the full winning postcode – those playing with the full winning postcode will land the biggest prizes.

Matt was delighted to be visiting the town this weekend to hand over some of the prize money.

“I’m so looking forward to visiting Ellesmere," he said. "My fellow ambassador Judie McCourt was here just over a year ago handing out cheques to six lucky winners, so I’m delighted that it’s my turn visit.

"It’s going to be a great weekend for all our lucky players!"

With a minimum of 32 per cent of every ticket going to charities and good causes, players have raised more than £486m for thousands of charities and good causes since 2005.

November’s Postcode Millions draw is being held on behalf of Postcode Equality Trust, which funds charities and good causes that are working for a fairer world by addressing inequality in society through improvements in health, human rights, education and community development.
