THREE lucky winners from Southend were chosen to win a whopping £1,000.. all thanks to the road they live down.

The Woodgrange Drive neighbours bagged the windfall when SS1 2SJ was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery on Thursday.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson has now sent his well-wishes to the winners.

He said: “Congratulations to our winners, I’m sure this news has made their day.”

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales from the lottery goes directly to charity, with players having raised over £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

A whole number of fantastic causes close to the winners hearts have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can next apply for funding in August.
