Seven residents in a Norfolk village have won £240,000 by playing the People’s Postcode Lottery.
The Garboldisham homeowners scooped a share of the prize pot after their postcode, IP22 2QN, was announced as winner in a draw promoted on behalf of cancer charity Clic Sargent.
Six players had one ticket, earning them £30,000 each, while a seventh doubled their prize to £60,000 having playing with two tickets.
“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.
