A woman from Saint Lucia and her husband who won £1M are helping to feed the homeless in the UK.
Media reports this month said some 70,000 people are without a home because of COVID-19.
The Daily Mail identified the Good Samaritan couple as Bill Mullarkey, 60, and Cath, 59.
They live in Coventry, West Midlands.
The couple won a jackpot in the weekly EuroMillions Millionaire Maker in 2017.
They decided to feed the homeless after seeing volunteers deliver 1,000 Domino’s pizzas to lorry drivers in Kent last month.
The Daily Mail reported that the couple created a Caribbean curry meal from Saint Lucia.
“‘As Cath is from St Lucia we went for a Caribbean curry,” Bill told the publication.
The pair helped chef Jim Eaves, who volunteers for Langar Aid, make the meal after purchasing and delivering the ingredients, alongside other snacks and drinks.
Bill and Cath found out they won £1million after they got an email from Camelot.
But Bill almost deleted it, thinking it was spam.
However his granddaughter urged him to click it.
Bill first noticed he had an email while in Saint Lucia on June 27.
He said at first they thought they had won £10,000 or £100,000.
Nevertheless, the couple ended up ‘screaming and dancing’ around the living room when they figured out it was £1million.
The couple previously said they planned to spend their money on a second home in Cath’s native Saint Lucia.
But the Daily Mail said their first priority was to help Messiah – a relative.
He is paralysed from the waist down because of a bike accident in Saint Lucia, the publication said.
