THIRTEEN lucky residents have walked away with a share of an incredible £345,000 in the last four years thanks to the People's Postcode Lottery.

All of the lucky winners have managed to bag themselves £30,000 or £25,000 each, just by taking part in the subscription lottery draw.

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 Colchester landed three residents £30,000 each back in 2017.

The Halstead Road neighbours, who all played with the postcode CO3 9AF, scooped the cash.

Film cameras surprised Philip Gunton while he was working at H Gunton grocers in Crouch Street, Colchester, with a cheque for the enviable amount.
