A FRIEND OF MINE FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM sent me news of a big time lottery winner. Here is his story:
A roofer who scooped a £3.6 (English pounds) million Lotto win is building a dream home “ but this time, he isn’t doing the work himself.
Stuart Hunt, 33, has been forced to live off his savings following an injury that kept him off work for two months.
He tore a knee ligament playing with his daughter and described the win as a Godsend.
The dad-of-three and partner, Nicky Martin, 29, won £3,676,642 with regular numbers 1, 11, 12, 13, 35 and 42 after asking her sister to get the ticket for them on Saturday.
Stuart, from Crawley, West Sussex, said he plans to treat himself and his family before building his house.
He said: We’ll go on big family holidays and stuff like that “ taking the girls somewhere it might take years to save up for, like Disney World in Florida.
He added: I’d love a Range Rover Sport.
The couple are determined to enjoy their wealth but are aware of the pressures.
Stuart said: People have won more than £3.6 million and gone bankrupt.
Nicky added: We won’t be one of them.
Stuart said that he plans to build their first house, and joked that he would probably let someone else do the roof.
He said: I’ve always fancied turning my hand to property development.
