Mark Gardiner won a record prize of £ 11 million and knew that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his present problems vanished, Mark found himself with new ones that he was not capable of or trained to handling. Mark won the jackpot with business partner and friend Paul Maddison. Together they won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and retreated in the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could believe it, Mark blew half of his winnings. Though he gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him just as if he had committed a crime. Finally he regained his bearings and is now wiser and remarried to his first wife, a childhood sweetheart, whom he had divorced when he was penniless.
Happily, however, not all stories are as heart breaking as the one mentioned above. There have been innumerable people who have made good on their fortune and remained grounded. Ianthe Fullagar, while a student, won an astonishing £ 7,055,142. After 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 degree in law. The only thing she planned to buy was a brand new car.
One anonymous winner donated all his winnings of $3 million to his church without batting an eye. The church has decided to not only expand its facilities to accommodate a growing congregation, but to donate some of the money to charities as well.
