Two neighbours in Johnstone are quids in after they each banked a welcome windfall in the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The duo, from Cedar Avenue, were named as winners of the daily prize draw on Friday, courtesy of their lucky postcode, PA5 9TJ.

They collect £1,000 for every People’s Postcode Lottery ticket they hold.

Danyl Johnson, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador, said: “I’m thrilled for our winners in Johnstone. I hope they have a great time spending their prize money.”

Proceeds from a minimum of 32 per cent of People’s Postcode Lottery ticket sales go directly to charities.

The next chance to apply for funding will be in January and this can be done online at
