A lucky resident in Whitechapel got an unexpected late Christmas present after winning the People’s Postcode Lottery this week.

The winner, whose identity is being kept anonymous, lives in Brady Street and scooped £1,000 after their postcode won the daily prize on Wednesday.

A minimum of 31 per cent of ticket sales for the People’s Postcode Lottery goes directly to charities including Osmani Trust in Whitechapel.

It received £1,500 last year to deliver a basketball project enabling local women and girls to play sport regularly and improve their health and wellbeing.

Danyl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, said: “What a great prize for our Whitechapel player just a few days after Christmas.

“With over £130 million in prizes to be won in 2018, why not enter the next draw with your postcode?”
