Pontyclun neighbours celebrate lottery win

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson

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

The Llwynfen Road neighbours netted the windfall when CF72 9EL was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Friday 6th March 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “What brilliant news to get just before the weekend! Congratulations to our winners, I think they’ll be celebrating tonight.”

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 Oxfam which has received over £9 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty. It supports disaster relief efforts, educational programmes, health initiatives and much more in over 90 countries worldwide.

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