WHILE they still cannot knock on the door or ring their bell, the Postcode Lottery has made three Oswestry residents £1,000 richer.

Three people in the town were celebrating over the weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Cambrian Drive neighbours netted the windfall when SY11 1HF was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday, July 25.

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

“Congratulations to our winners," she said.

"What a great surprise for them, I’m sure this news made their weekend.”

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 The Ramblers which has received more than £10.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The charity works to protect and expand the places where people love to walk.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August.
