A couple who won nearly £7million on the lottery have given away every penny in just three months.
Allen and Violet Large drew up a list of good causes – then handed a cheque to each one.
Violet, 78, said: “What you’ve never had, you never miss.”
So when their numbers came up on July 14 they gave it away. Retired welder Allen, 75, said: “We were pretty well set, not millionaires, but comfortable.”
Married since 1974, the couple retired to Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1983 and the win came at a difficult time with Violet being treated for cancer.
Choking back tears, Allen said: “That money that we won was nothing. We have each other.”
