Two North Shields residents are celebrating a lottery win.

The pair have scooped £1,000 after their postcode – NE29 9LG – was announced as a Daily Prize winner on the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Offering his congratulations, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson said: “I’m delighted for all of our North Shields residents. I’m sure they will enjoy treating themselves with their prize money.

“Sign up to play now and you could be winning next.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities, and players of the People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £361m to date for some 4,000 good causes.

A number of local causes have benefitted from the money raised, and the next opportunity to apply for funding will be in January.
