SEVERAL Barnsley residents had extra cause for celebration on Bank Holiday Monday after they woke up to the news they have scooped £1,000 each, all thanks to their postcode.

There were five winners on Dovebush Way, Barugh Green, when S75 1QE was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Monday.

Sending her congratulations, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Julie McCourt said: “Finding out that you’ve won the lottery on a long bank holiday weekend is such lovely news, so I’m delighted for our winners in Barnsley. I hope they spoil themselves with the cash.”
