Sending her congratulations was People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt. She said: “Hearing you’ve picked up a prize on the lottery is great news to get on a Friday and I’m delighted for our winners in Luddenden Foot.

"I hope they have a great time celebrating over the weekend.”

This draw was promoted by Friends of the Earth, which has received over £7.2 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

This support helps it campaign for environmental and social causes around the world.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players support, and the next opportunity local charities will have to apply for funding will be early next year.
