Four lucky Southend residents have walked away with a share of an incredible £120,000 in the last five years thanks to the People's Postcode Lottery. 

All of the lucky winners have managed to bag themselves £30,000 each, just by taking part in the subscription lottery draw. 

In the Saturday and Sunday 'Street Prizes' where lucky postcodes are announced, every ticket in that postcode wins £30,000.

With the option to buy multiple tickets you could win up to £90,000. 

The People's Postcode Lottery is a subscription lottery that raises money for charity whilst also giving out cash prizes to subscribers.

Players who sign up must pay £10 per month and are then automatically entered into every draw and prizes are announced every day of the year. 

One postcode in Leigh-on-Sea landed two lucky people a staggering £30,000 prize each back in 2018.

The Glendale Gardens neighbours, who both play with the postcode SS9 2AP, scooped the cash after winning the Sunday Street Prize draw.

Jed was joined by wife Jan when the People's Postcode Lottery team turned up outside his door, ready to present him with his cheque.

The win couldn't have come at a better time for Jed as he's just celebrating his 65th birthday and is planning his retirement.

He said: "My family emigrated to Australia seven years ago and we have two granddaughters over there, so with my retirement coming up, myself and Jan are hoping to spend more time over there."

Jed signed up to play after hearing that the wife of one of his good friends had won the £1,000 Daily Prize and thought he'd give it a try himself.

All of the winning postcodes are: 

SS9 4SR - £30,000 two winning tickets in 2017 

SS9 2AP - £30,000 two winning tickets in 2018

The People's Postcode Lottery is also famous for their £3million postcode draw which gets shared across the number of tickets in the postcode that entered. 

Unfortunately, Southend hasn't had any winners from the millions jackpot just yet. 

Not only is the People's Postcode Lottery a good chance to try and get your hands on some all important cash, it's also a great way to give back to important causes with 32% of each ticket going to charity. 

In 2015 the People's Postcode Lottery donated £20,000 to Southend Mencap to help them deliver music education to children and adults with learning disabilities.
