A chef who recently won one million pounds, still came for work on both Christmas and Boxing Day because he did not want to let his customers down. Didzis Pirags won the jackpot prize during his lunch break last weekend but despite that was determined not to let down the people who would be going to the pub over the extended festive period.
Pirags works as the kitchen manager at The Hungry House in Broughton and is a single dad. While talking to local media, he said that he decided to buy an online scratch card after he felt a 'lucky itch'. Pirags's turned out to be very lucky because he won the jackpot.
The single dad has said that with the prize money he was able to put down the deposit on his first-ever home and that it will totally change his and his five-year-old son's life. Didzis also added that he currently works 60 hours a week and the money will allow him to quit his job and look for a new one where he can get weekends off so that he can spend more time with his son.
Sounds like a good man. Nice when good things happen to good people.— Michael Edwards (@MENorthAffinity) December 27, 2019

In related news, a builder who turned a multi-millionaire due to a lottery win has said that even with the large amount of money that he has won he will stay humble and return to work. He has decided that he will even work for free so that some families can have more money to spend on Christmas.
Steve Thompson won 105 million pounds in a Europe wide lottery and became the ninth-biggest UK winner. A neighbour of Steve while talking to local media said that Steve had installed a conservatory for him and after completing his work he refused to charge him.
The neighbour added that after the win he and Steve have not talked about his win because he felt like Steve will have talked enough about that to other people, the neighbour also said that his actions show that he is a nice man. Steve has decided that he will complete all the outstanding jobs that he is working on before he stops working, he still uses his old yellow work van and since he only has a few more projects left he does not see a reason to replace it.
