A mystery group have been hard at work in the hope of giving lucky Colners a day to remember.

The “Gud Luck Club” began their mission on Tuesday, leaving 10 National Lottery scratchcards around the town for locals to find.

And their initial quest was an immediate success, with one parent emailing us to tell us her son and daughter were among the first to pick up one of the white envelopes stating “It’s yours, Gud Luck”.

Jayden Donlan (6) and Nicole Woods (15) won £2 after finding the gift in Colne Library.

It is not yet known who is behind the town’s latest “random act of kindness” but the Colne Times has been messaging one member of the club, believed to be 49-years-old, via the club’s Facebook page.

The name of the page has had to be changed from “Gud Luck” to “Gary Luk” due to Facebook policy.

Writing on the social media site, the member said: “Hello all you lucky people: things need to change, people need to be given a chance and we are here to do just that.”

The resident went on to say “None of you know me, but don’t worry. It’s not about ‘knowing’ it’s about ‘giving’... Charity begins at home and Colne is our home” and encouraged anybody that finds an envelope to let them know.

The latest good-hearted gesture comes after our story last week about a thoughtful trio from Colne who have been spreading smiles by leaving small gifts for residents.

As well as hiding scratchcards around the town, the new group have also come up with another idea.

They added: “A member of our club will wander around Colne, in his/her pocket he/she will have £10, the first person to shake him/her by the hand and say ‘Gud Luck‘ will be given the £10, this will be repeated for 5 days monday - friday with £10 for each day, if the money is not claimed on a particular day the £10 will roll over to the next day making it £20 and so on until it is claimed, if none of the money is claimed it will given away on the saturday [sic].”
