Mark Gardiner lotto Winner

Mark Gardiner won a record prize of £ 11 million and thought that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not capable of or trained to handling. With his business partner, friend Paul Maddison, Mark won the jackpot. Together the two of them won a record £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and faded into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.

Before he could believe it, Mark blew half of his winnings. While he bought expensive cars and houses, gave to friends and relatives, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family shunned him as though he had committed a crime. Finally, Mark regained his bearings, grew wiser, and remarried his first wife, a childhood sweetheart, whom he had divorced when he was penniless.

Gladly, not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been very many people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, a student, won a life-changing £ 7,055,142. After the usual screaming in disbelief she settled down and called her family, and her boyfriend, and shared the news with them. Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with her near ones and to continue to pursue her law studies. The main new thing she planned to buy was a new automobile.

One generous (and anonymous) winner, without batting an eye, donated all his $3 million winnings to his church. The church has decided to expand to accommodate its growing congregation; they will also donate some of the money to charities.

The point is, as a lotto winner you now are in the enviable position to do a lot of good for yourself and for those around you. Your community stands to benefit as well, but only if you maintain a cool head and spend the money wisely.
