Christmas comes early in this South Shields street after four neighbours win lottery
Christmas has arrived early in one South Shields street as neighbours are celebrating a four-figure lottery windfall each.
Four lucky residents of Lincoln Road all received £1,000 when their NE34 7JH postcode was announced as a daily prize winner with the People’s Postcode Lottery on Tuesday, December 22.
People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Danyl Johnson sent his well-wishes to the winners, adding: ‘It’s an amazing surprise to receive at this time of year.
"Congratulations to our winners in South Shields. I’m sure they’ll enjoy spending the cash and treat themselves to something special."
