One Kempstonian is celebrating today after winning £30,000 in the people’s postcode lottery.
The anonymous resident, who lives in Whittingstall Avenue, scooped the lump sum when their MK42 8NJ postcode was announced as a winner today (25 July).
They were the only one playing with the winning postcode in Kempston, but had anyone else been playing they would also have won £30,000.
Every day in July’s draws, players in one lucky postcode will win £30,000 per ticket, with a minimum of £17 million being won.
“What wonderful news for our lucky winner in Kempston, with such glorious weather I’m sure they’ll be celebrating today,” said People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, Judie McCourt.
“I hope they treat themselves to something special with the windfall.”
A minimum of 32% of ticket sales from the People’s Postcode Lottery goes directly to charities with more than £450 million raised so far.
The winning was promoted on behalf of Woodland Trust, which has received over £10.1 million from the lottery.
But it’s not just national charities that benefit. Kempston based Road Victims Trust was awarded £10,000 earlier this year so it can continue its counselling sessions to those affected by road accidents.
