SIX lucky neighbours in Cwmbran have each won £1,000 in the People's Postcode lottery.

They won the prize when their postcode, NP44 7PL, was announced as a Daily Prize winner on Friday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her well-wishes to the winners, saying: “What a surprise to kickstart the weekend. Congratulations to our winners.”

Friday's draw was promoted by Oxfam which has received over £9.6 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

A minimum of 32 per cent from each subscription goes directly to charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally, and players have raised more than £500 million so far.

The lottery also supports good causes close to the winners. Local charities can next apply for funding in August.
