The Highland Dykes Crescent neighbours netted the windfall when FK4 1ES was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery.

A minimum of 32 per cent of ticket sales goes directly to charities and players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised upwards of £500 million to date for thousands of good causes in Britain and beyond.

This draw was promoted by Woodland Trust which has received more than £13.1 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
