THREE neighbours from Binfield are toasting an Easter windfall after their postcode came up in a national lottery. 

The homes, off Forest Road in the village, have all been awarded £1,000 by the People’s Postcode Lottery in its Daily Draw for Thursday, Apil 9. 

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt was unable to present the award due to covid-19 restrictions but sent her well-wishes to the winners. 

She said: “What lovely news to start the day. Congratulations to all our winners.”

The Lottery said that a third of its ticket sales goes to charity, and so far its players have raised more than £500 million – this draw was promoted by Maggie’s, which runs a network of cancer support centres across the country. 

It has received more than £16.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Charities will be invited to apply for the next round of funding in August.
