Barrow neighbours celebrate lottery win

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson

Four people in Barrow-In-Furness were celebrating at the weekend after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Ramsey Park neighbours netted the windfall when LA14 1SY was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Saturday 24th October 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners. He said: “I’m delighted for all of our winners in Barrow-In-Furness. I hope they enjoy spending the win and treat themselves with the prize money.”

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

This draw was promoted on behalf of Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) which has received more than £3.5 million in funding thanks to players. RNIB is one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people.

Its focus is on giving people the help, support and tools they need to realise their aspirations.

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