Four people in Ilkeston had an extra reason to celebrate the new year after picking up £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.
The Field Road neighbours netted the windfall when DE7 5RL was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery on New Year’s Eve.
Singer and entertainer Danyl Johnson, an ambassador for the lottery, said: “What a fantastic way to start 2020. I hope our Ilkeston winners went out to celebrate.”
Players of the People's Postcode Lottery have raised more than £500 million for charities through ticket sales over the years.
The New Year’s Eve draw was promoted by Save The Children, which has received more than £8.2 million.
