Three lucky York people are celebrating an extra special Friday night thanks to the People’s Postcode Lottery.

We revealed last week that the winning postcode began with YO31 9.

And today (Friday, 28 June) the lottery team hit York to reveal the full winning postcode – YO31 9LW.

There were three players in that postcode – Healey Grove in Huntington – who won the big prizes.


One woman called Michelle, and Donna Harper both had one ticket each and so each won £179,757. Mark had two tickets so received two cheques for that amount – a total haul of £359,514!

A total of 377 other players in YO31 9 shared the rest of the £3 million prize pot.

Players with a single ticket in the sector won £5,590. Players with two tickets scooped £11,180 and those with three tickets collected £16,770.

Winners will receive a letter confirming their prize on Saturday (29 June).

People’s Postcode Lottery Presenter Danyl Johnson said:

  • We’ve had fun knocking on the doors of some of the winners in York.

    With some big cash prizes being handed out this month, there’ll be plenty to celebrate for the people in the winning postcode sector.
