Cardiff neighbours start weekend with lottery win

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt

Nine people in Cardiff are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Felbrigg Crescent neighbours netted the windfall when CF23 8SE was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday 8th May 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “What a surprise to get just before the weekend, I hope it has made their day! Congratulations to our winners.”

A minimum of 32% 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 draw was promoted by the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association which has received over £2.2 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The charity is known for its iconic guide dogs but also offers a range of services which help thousands of people with sight loss lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives.

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