IT WAS champagne all round in Ventnor last night (Thursday) when eight neighbours celebrated their People’s Postcode Lottery win.

Seven of the lucky Lowtherville Road players netted £1,000 each, while the eighth doubled their prize to £2,000 thanks to playing with two tickets.

All the Daily Prize winners played with the postcode PO38 1AP.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, Danyl Johnson, was on hand to congratulate the winners.

He said: “I’m delighted for all our winners in Ventnor. I love seeing neighbours win together and I hope they all enjoy spending their prize."

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities, and players have raised £282 million to date for 4,000 good causes.

The Island 2000 Trust were awarded £20,000 last year to improve accessibility at Brading Down Local Nature Reserve.
