Two residents are celebrating after scooping £1,000 lottery winnings.

The pair are among the latest winners on the People’s Postcode Lottery.

They landed the Daily Prize on Thursday, March 22, after their Waterville Road postcode – NE29 6AY – was selected.

People’s Postcode Lottery Ambassador, Danyl Johnson, was on hand to congratulate the winners.

He said: “I’m over the moon for our players in North Shields.

“It’s always great to see neighbours win together and I hope they enjoy spending their prize!”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities.

And over the years, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised £282million for 4,000 good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

A local cause near the winners that has received funding is Workie Ticket Theatre Company, which was awarded £2,000 last year to deliver workshops to survivors of domestic abuse.
