TWO Townhill neighbours were celebrating over the weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Forest Road residents netted the windfall when KY12 0ET was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What a fantastic surprise for our winners! Congratulations to them and I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.
