Strange Requests for Euromillions Winners
Tonight a £24 million Euromillions jackpot goes up for grabs, and you’d think the higher the jackpot, the happier the winner but this may not be the case. We’ve been closely following the trials and tribulations of the Weirs, the £161 million Euromillions winners who have had to flee after being deluged with begging letters and there are certainly some strange requests for the Euromillions winners rolling in right now.
Royal Mail are sorting out a deluge of mail for the Euromillions winners, much of it just addressed to “The Weirs, Largs”. Some of the main is from overseas, some from the UK, but the all have one thing in common; everyone wants a slice of their good luck!
In addition to the strain on the local postal service, a Facebook group has been set up in their honour. Thankfully they are in another country, which they may be glad of should they ever see the requests on the Facebook page. Many are from overseas, asking for all sorts of strange things. Help has been asked for from an African Farm, medical fees for sick children abroad and even someone asking the Weirs to pay for their wedding!
The win has certainly had the right effect for the National Lottery, after all the Euromillions has barely been out of the news since the record-breaking Euromillions win, but we’re not sure if the Weirs would agree. They may now just be hoping the whole thing blows over as soon as possible, leaving them to get back to their life and readjust to their new-found fortune.
If you don’t mind taking the risk of being hounded with begging letters, then don’t forget your Euromillions tickets for tonight’s £24 million rollover, and most importantly make sure you check back for the Euromillions results in a few hours too!
