Residents in Hadston are celebrating after winning the lottery.

The village postcode, NE65 9SX, landed the People’s Postcode Lottery’s Daily Prize last Monday.

The six Chibburn Avenue neighbours who play using that postcode scooped £1,000 each.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, Danyl Johnson, said: “I’m delighted for our Hadston players for their win and I hope they enjoy spending their prize.”

A minimum of 30 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised more than £190million for good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

A local cause that has received support from players is Northumberland-based Fourth Action, which was awarded £2,000 last year to develop a space for women’s workshops.
