Builder who scooped £105m EuroMillions jackpot donates £200,000 to help his local community

EUROMILLIONS builder Steve Thomson has given away £200,000 to help his local community.

The white van man, 43, who won £105million last year, handed £100,000 to his beloved cricket club in Selsey, West Sussex, for a new pavilion.

Dad-of-three Steve then donated £50,000 to Selsey Medical Centre to fund new equipment, so locals do not have to travel miles for appointments.

He then handed a further £50,000 to his two sons’ 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.

"He's certainly stuck to his word."

Steve, who became richer than 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 prize.

And 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 started for his loyal customers.
