NINE people in Cowdenbeath are celebrating after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Foulford Road neighbours netted the windfall when KY4 9AX was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Thursday, November 19.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: ‘What a fantastic surprise, congratulations to our winners in Cowdenbeath! I’m sure they’ll enjoy spending the cash and treat themselves to something special.’

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 by Postcode Community Trust which is funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. It provides short-term, designated funding to good causes that promote community development and demonstrate positive change through access, engagement and skill development.

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