EuroMillions winners donate huge sum to local football team
Back to news


EuroMillions is one of the biggest lottery games in the world, with jackpots often running to tens or even hundreds of millions of pounds. That sort of money is life-changing for any winner, but sometimes they prefer to share their new-found wealth with others. That's what one lucky EuroMillions-winning couple did, donating a large sum of their £161million lottery jackpot to the academy of their local football team. That's a generous move – even if you are as rich as a small country!The money donated by this generous pair will be used to fund the building of a new youth academy for Partick Thistle football club; doubly good news for their fans, after the club was recently promoted to the Scottish Premiership for the first time in almost a decade. The Thistle Weir Youth Academy will provide for 120 youth players, as well as a range of football-related activities for the local community. And that's not the only good cause these guys have been involved with; they also donated £750,000 for a new pitch at local youth team Largs Thistle.Of course, it's not easy to figure out how to spend such a massive amount of money; especially not if you're determined to make your EuroMillions spending meaningful.
