Good news in the gloom!

Judie McCourt

A BIT of good news in the gloom! Four people in Stranraer are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode. The Fairhurst Road neighbours netted the windfall when DG9 7QE was announced as a Daily Prize winner with People's Postcode Lottery on Thursday. People's Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners. She said: “I'm so pleased for our winners, what a great surprise to start their day! I hope they treat themselves to something nice with their winnings.” Organisers say a minimum of 32pc of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People's Postcode Lottery have raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond. A Press releases says: ""This draw was promoted by the Wildlife Trusts which have received over £12.6 million in funding from the players of People's Postcode Lottery. The Wildlife Trusts look after more than 2,300 nature reserves and operate more than 100 visitor and education centres across the country. The Trusts work to make life better for wildlife, people and future generations. Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players' support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August."
