LUCKY residents are celebrating winning £1,000 in a lottery.

Fifteen Mardale Avenue neighbours netted the windfall when WA2 9HF was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson sent his well-wishes to the Orford winners.

He said: "A big congratulations to all those who have picked up a prize today in Warrington. I hope the win will help lift their spirits and they treat themselves to something special with the cash."

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

This draw was promoted by Postcode Green Trust.

Its mission is to promote conservation and protection of wildlife and habitats by encouraging enjoyment and promoting access to the outdoors. The trust supports charities and good causes through grant funding. It operates its own society lottery and receives all of its funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
