FIVE neighbours scooped a daily jackpot prize because of their postcode.

The residents in Sheepbell Close, Portslade, were told they had won in the daily draw by the People’s Postcode Lottery this month.

Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson took the news of their win to them on Thursday.

The lucky winners scooped £1,000 each because they lived at BN41 2GX.

Danyl said: “What great news for our winners. I’m thrilled for them and I hope they enjoy their winnings.”

The lottery funds good causes, with a third of revenue handed over to charity.

Lottery organisers said the daily draw on Thursday was for Girlguiding, which has so far received more than £5 million. For more information on the lottery, visit postcodelottery.co.uk.
