Ellesmere residents set to share £3 million Postcode Lottery prize!


Lucky People’s Postcode Lottery players from the Ellesmere area will be celebrating after it was announced today that they’ll be sharing a mega £3 million prize pot!

Residents who play with a ticket in the postcode sector SY12 0 will each win a share of the money after it was revealed as the winning postcode sector in the lottery’s November Postcode Millions prize draw via Facebook Live.

Lucky winners will find out exactly how much they’ve scooped on Saturday 30th November.

Prize amounts will vary depending on how many tickets players have and whether they are in the full winning postcode – those playing with the full winning postcode will land the biggest prizes.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassadors Matt Johnson and Danyl Johnson will be  visiting some of the lucky winners.

Matt told the Oswestry Life today: “I’m so looking forward to visiting Ellesmere Ellesmere.  My fellow ambassador Judie McCourt was here just over a year ago handing out cheques, so I’m delighted that it’s my turn visit. It’s going to be a great weekend for all our lucky players!”

With a minimum of 32% of every ticket going to charities and good causes, players have raised more than £486 million for thousands of charities and good causes since 2005.

November’s Postcode Millions draw is being held on behalf of Postcode Equality Trust which funds charities and good causes that are working for a fairer world by addressing inequality in society through improvements in health, human rights, education and community development.

Local charities win too and lots of good causes supporting communities in Ellesmere have been supported with funding raised by players. Beachtree Community Centre was awarded £5,000 to provide local residents with the opportunity to participate in sports including new-age kurling and badminton.

In October 2018 a trio of neighbours from Oswestry had cause for celebration after netting   £30,000  each all thanks to playing People's Postcode Lottery.
