Frances and Patrick Connolly
In 2019, Frances and Patrick Connolly won a whopping £114.9 million in the lottery. As excited as they were, they sat down and planned how they would give away most of the winnings. They gave a large sum to family members and friends they knew who needed extra support. Then they set up charities to help those in need in their community.
Les Robbins is another lottery winner who won $111 million. Before winning the lottery, he was a school teacher. He used his winnings to set up a summer camp where kids could go in the summer without paying a lot of money.
Maybe you want to help people in your community or you have some charities you would like to support. Winning the lottery gives you the opportunity to do something meaningful.
