Half of £115m given away for charity by the winners
The Euromillions jackpot is the second most popular lottery in the world. The couple won the Euromillions lottery worth £115m in 2019 which happened to be the 4th largest jackpot in the last 25 years. The Euromillions jackpot was handed to them on the glittery 2019 New Year’s day. They have donated 50% of the lottery winning to their dear ones and the needy ones. `Frances,54 and Patrick, 56, both together have extended the meaning of generosity after donating the undescribed from their lottery win. On the eve of winning the lottery, the first thing that Francis did was to pen down the list of 50 friends and family members that she wanted to give or help with the lottery economy.
Euromillions Jackpot winning numbers have made several players lucky. Very rarely there are winners who are happy helping and donating instead of buying luxurious cars and expensive jewellery.
Charity set up after winning the lottery
It started with listing down 50 close ones for sending gifts and a helping hand. But it was only the beginning of charity. 2 charitable trusts have been built by them in Hartlepool and Northern Islands. The couple units have given shelter to the most vulnerable and in-need people in their area.
Their bucket of Charity boosted up to £60millions on the New Year’s Day.
“I didn’t target to give half of it, it just happened. And we have never been this satisfied as we are now doing the good deeds.” states Frances.
Continuing the tale, the couple have paid for the gifts and toiletries for the patients in the local hospital. Clothes and food for the Covid patients were also given on Christmas as they could not have visitors to come. A whole new definition of humanity has been curated by these two.
Rewards of the good deeds
Frances uttered that in a period of very months she and Patrick received letters from strangers for thanking them. People had received unexpected and unsaid help from these two while they were fighting their battle. In no time they were loaded with approximately 300 heartfelt and warm letters from the entire side of where their donations took place.
After the charity, she set her heart on finding a house. The agent turned up with the photos and brochures of castles, a huge villa that almost had a village but they refrained. They did not want to be the lord and lordess of the manor says Frances. They wanted a home where more than basics could fit in.
Finally, they landed at a place in Moira, Co Down which gave them the perfect homely vibes.
“The journey of two years has been extremely joyful from start to finish.”
