Eight people in Leeds are in the money thanks to lottery win

Eight people in Leeds received a welcome surprise earlier this week after waking up to find out they had won a cash sum on the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The Park Lane neighbours each landed £1,000 when LS26 0EP was announced as a daily prize winner on Tuesday, January, 22.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her congratulations and said: “What a terrific Tuesday for our players in Leeds who have picked up a prize today. I hope they treat themselves to something special with the windfall.”
