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

The King George V Road neighbours netted the windfall when HP6 5DP was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on December 23, 2020.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson said: “A big congratulations to all those who have picked up a prize today in Amersham.

“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 over £600 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted on behalf of the NSPCC which has received over £5.2 million worth of funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The NSPCC works to protect children today, prevent abuse tomorrow and to make child abuse a thing of the past.
