Louth residents win £1,000 each thanks to lucky postcode

Four people in Louth woke up to a very pleasant surprise today - landing themselves a windfall of £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode!

A 'thumbs up' from People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson.

The Pippin Close neighbours picked up the cash prize when LN11 9FF was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery Daily Prize winner on Wednesday (May 27).

Matt Johnson, one of the People’s Postcode Lottery ambassadors, sent his well wishes to those playing with the lucky postcode.

He said: “A huge congratulations to our winners in Louth today! I’m sure the windfall will help lift their spirits and I hope they can treat themselves to something special.”

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

This particular draw was promoted by Amnesty International UK, which has received more than £8.1 million in funding to help protect women, men and children wherever justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied. Many local good causes have also benefitted from players’ support.

The next opportunity for local charities to apply for funding raised by players will be in August.
