The UK’s latest EuroMillions player to win the jackpot has revealed that despite becoming a millionaire she is even more determined to continue helping the elderly for nothing.

Angela Maxwell, who won £53 million on the EuroMillions lottery last week, spends her time volunteering at a community kitchen where she serves meals to the elderly who are no longer able to cook for themselves. The pensioner’s lunch club, which takes place once a week in Boston, Lincolnshire, costs just £3 per week for every member and includes a two course meal and a raffle ticket, and Mrs Maxwell said that the regulars enjoy it and she enjoys being part of making it possible for them.

After winning her EuroMillions jackpot, the lottery winner immediately said that she will be continuing with her volunteer work because it is lovely for her to see and spend time with the old people at the community hall. “My volunteer work is very important to me”, she said. In fact, it was on a day when Mrs Maxwell was working at the lunch club that her husband Richard realised they had won the EuroMillions lottery, but he didn’t let his wife know about the win until four hours later, when she got home.

“I knew Angela would be busy and wouldn’t answer her mobile phone, so I waited till she got home,” Mr Maxwell said, continuing to say that he kept himself busy until his wife arrived home, making cups of tea for the builders who were working on their house and keeping tabs on his winning EuroMillions ticket. But when she got home, Mr Maxwell immediately informed her: “Angela, I’ve got something to tell you.”

The community volunteer said that at first she didn’t believe her ears, but once she saw the EuroMillions ticket for herself she had to sit down, and she felt stunned for a good long while afterwards. The lottery winning couple are now planning to use some of their winnings to buy a new community minibus for the pensioner’s lunch club, after their old one broke down.
