Football season has come to an end in Scotland, but that doesn’t mean the end of the season must come with sadness. Partick Thistle has recently been blessed with some amazing news. EuroMillions winners Colin and Christine Weir have always been very passionate about the game, so they have decided to donate a further £500,000 to their favourite club in order for them to have a secure long-term future of the youth club.
Last year, the winning EuroMillions couple donated a portion of their winnings from their massive £161 million
The club actually did quite well this season after coming 9th in the Scottish Premiership. The chairman of the club, David Beattie, said, “The development across the Thistle Weir Youth Academy in recent years has been nothing short of phenomenal. Youth development is the massive part of the club’s long-term future and is something that the club sees as essential to underpinning further success.”
The donation to the Youth club is the latest one to have been made by the EuroMillions winners to football teams. Other EuroMillions winners, Lee, and Sue Mullen invested £50,000 into Grimsby Town so that it could help the town get back their Football League. They won £4.8 million with EuroMillions.
Lottery winners in England don’t only donate to Football clubs, though. $429.6 million Powerball winner Pearlie Smith donated 10% of all her winnings towards the Church. UK lotto winners Lorraine and Derek donated some of their winnings towards the betterment of their community.
“There're no two ways about it, the Thistle Weir Youth Academy is absolutely massive for this club and we are grateful to Chris and Colin for this generous donation,” said the grateful chairman.
Colin and Christine are overjoyed to see what the academy has achieved in such a short space of time. “We are very happy to provide further funds to ensure the academy grows,” said the EuroMillions winners.
