EuroMillions winner keeps incredible promise he made last after £105million win

A generous EuroMillions winner has donated £200,000 to help his local community.

Builder Steve Thomson scooped a huge £105million jackpot last year, and announced he would use the money to help look after his friends and local community.

He handed £100,000 to his beloved cricket club in Selsey, West Sussex, while another £50,000 went to Selsey Medical Centre to fund new equipment so locals do not have to travel large distances for appointments.

Dad-of-three Steve, 43, also gave another £50,000 to his two son's school.

A source said: "He's not the kind of guy who wants recognition for doing something good.

"When he won the jackpot last year, he said he would look after friends and the community. He's certainly stuck to his word."

Steve, who became richer than England football captain Harry Kane and Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood after the win, took a while to start splashing the cash.

He bought a second-hand VW van for himself and a Volvo XC90 for wife Lenka nine months after landing the massive windfall.

The family was still living in their three-bed council house until earlier this year.

Steve also continued working over Christmas last year, promising to finish jobs he had already started for his loyal customers.

After realising he had won the jackpot, Steve said he was "on the verge of having a heart attack".

He said: "I started shaking a lot. I knew it was a really big win but didn't know what to do.

"I think I was on the verge of having a heart attack.

"Once I am over the shock I will ned to keep doing something.

"I am not the type just to sit still. My business partner knows that if he needs a hand, I'll be there."
