“It hasn’t really sunk in yet,” said one winner of £30,000, who wished to remain anonymous.

“I’ll put some away to enjoy myself when I can. These days you never know what’s round the corner so, whilst you want to enjoy the day, it’s good to be prepared.

“We’re going through rubbish times just now, so it’s nice to have this.”

Playing the People’s Postcode Lottery costs £10 per month, with 32pc of ticket money going to good causes such as Clic Sargent, which has received £9.7 million in funding over the years.
