SEVEN Halesowen neighbours have received some good news today – they’ve each scooped a cash prize of £1,000 thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Avon Road neighbours landed the windfall when B63 2NA was announced as a People’s Postcode Lottery Daily Prize winner today (Tuesday May 19).

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Jeff Brazier sent his well wishes.

He said: “A big congratulations to our winners in Halesowen today!

"I’m sure the win 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 draw was promoted by ActionAid, which has received more than £8.4 million in funding to help change the lives of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable women and children across the world.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support.

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