This draw was promoted on behalf of Barnardo’s which has received over £5 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Barnardo's purpose is to transform the lives of the UK's most vulnerable children through essential services, campaigning and research.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support, and local charities can apply for funding next year.
