EIGHT neighbours on a Dudley street have scooped cash prizes on the People's Postcode Lottery.

The lucky neighbours on Eve Lane won £1,000 each after their DY1 postcode was announced as a Daily Prize winner on Saturday, August 1.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners and said: “What a great surprise for our winners. I’m sure this news made their weekend and I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

The draw was sponsored by Depaul, a nationwide charity that helps homeless young people.

The charity, which has received over £10.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, works to tackle the immediate and long-term effects of homelessness and provide safe and stable futures for young people.

Applications for local charities to apply to the People's Postcode opened on Tuesday, August 4.
