Two people in Drumnadrochit were celebrating over the weekend after winning £1000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The neighbours netted the windfall when IV63 6TU was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery yesterday.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson said: “What great news to get over the weekend. Congratulations to our winners, I hope they go and treat themselves with their winnings.”
A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £500 million to date for thousands of good causes.
This draw was promoted by Depaul which has received more than £10.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Depaul is a nationwide charity for youth homelessness, it works to tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for young people.
Many good causes close to the winners have also benefited from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding from tomorrow.
