    £2m grant to restore South Downs’ nature-rich chalk grassland

    Rare and nature-rich chalk grassland will be restored with a £2.23 million National Lottery grant for the South Downs, the National Trust has said.

    A partnership led by the charity to restore the ancient landscape and connect people to it will manage land for nature, offer outdoor therapeutic sessions for those with mental health needs and create jobs and volunteering opportunities.

    Some 18 schemes, including returning 60 hectares (150 acres) of golf course to downland and reintroducing grazing to help manage 40 sites, will go ahead over the next four years.

    In total, 815 hectares (2,000 acres) of land will be managed for nature, the National Trust said, while there will be community projects to access green space, and an archaeology project to get people digging for history in gardens and public spaces.

    The 10-organisation-strong partnership will work with communities, farmers, landowners and vineyards, and will provide jobs, apprenticeships and training in Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne and Lewes, as well as new skills for around 2,500 volunteers, the National Trust said.

    Grandmother's 'total disbelief' at winning £3.8M jackpot

    Diane Bate, 70, was in “total disbelief” after winning the multi-million pound prize in the Lotto draw on December 12. 

    Diane said: “I checked my ticket early on Sunday morning using the National Lottery app when it made a funny sound.

    “I looked at the amount and couldn’t quite believe my eyes, I thought, ‘surely that can’t be right?!’ The most I have ever won before is £100.

    “I was in total disbelief so I woke Michael up to check the ticket – he wasn’t happy but we’ve been married 52 years so he soon got over it!

    “I still didn’t believe it, so I also checked it with my granddaughter too.  I must have checked it about six times in total before I started to believe it was real, and at that point, I was physically sick!”

    Lottery winners adviser reveals the ways people react to their wins

    Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, has seen “all sorts” of reactions in his 15 years dealing with lucky ticketholders.

    “I’ve seen people be sick with excitement, I’ve seen people resign their job on the spot, I’ve seen people jumping up and down, I’ve known husbands who haven’t told wives and wives who haven’t told husbands, I’ve been to homes where there’s literally a party going on already,” he said.

    Who are Set For Life winners Laura Hoyle & Kirk Stevens?

    Couple Laura Hoyle, 39, and Kirk Stevens, 45, won the Set For Life draw on March 1 this year.

    It means they will receive £10,000 every month for the next 30 years – but it took them nearly two weeks to realise they had scooped the top prize.

    When they found they had won, Ms Hoyle immediately finished her work at a logistics firm.

    She said: "I was physically shaking as I told the lady, 'I think I've won the lottery!' It was so weird saying those words!

    "I kept thinking this must be a joke; it can't be happening to us!

    "The ridiculous part was that, as I waited for Camelot to call me back, I still had to join work meetings online… I could hardly speak, let alone make any sense!"

    Lottery-winning couple visit UK's 'most haunted' location

    A ghost-hunting couple who won the National Lottery have used their winnings to visit one of the UK's "most haunted" locations.

    Laura Hoyle, 39, and Kirk Stevens, 37, from Nottingham, have been ghost-hunters for years, and said the visit to Nottingham's Museum of Justice was a "dream come true"

    Formerly a courtroom, prison, and police station, the Museum of Justice was voted the most haunted site in the UK by TV programme Most Haunted.

    Mr Stevens said: "It was a dream come true… We would never have been able to enjoy an event like this before the win.

    "Ask any paranormal investigator what their dream is, and they'd say good equipment and to have access all areas to a venue like the Justice Museum."

    Thundebrall draw takes place at 8pm

    Shortly before the huge EuroMillions draw, Thunderball will also take place.

    It gives Brits the chance to win a cool £500,000 for matching all numbers and the Thunderball itself.

    The draw takes place at 8pm, with EuroMillions taking place between 8.30 – 8.45pm.

    Best of luck!

      The most 'boring multimillionaires'

      Gareth and his wife Catherine joked they were the most “boring multimillionaires” when they won £40.6million the EuroMillions in 2012.

      She said she wanted a new carpet for the six-bedroom home he had just built and have her hair done twice a year.

      But he eventually splashed out on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley.

      They also bought a holiday villa in Tenerife. She gave up her job and he wound down his building company.

      While it seemed to be going well for the pair, they ended up splitting up and Gareth started dating a woman named Donna Desporte, who he seduced by telling her to "Google him" in a bar in Tenerife.

      They had a nine-month fling – which ended with him ignoring and avoiding her, according to Donna.

      Past EuroMillions winners – from botched bum lift to money 'ruining life'

      While a few have used their winnings for good, others have suffered heartbreak along the way, as they fall victim to the so-called lottery curse – with marriage scandals, financial feuds, violent robberies, botched cosmetic surgery and tragedy.

      Britain's youngest lottery winner, Jane Park, received £1million from EuroMillions, but despite winning the least on our list, she made the biggest splurge.

      Just 17 at the time, she treated herself to cars, holidays, clothes and plastic surgery. But she said that winning has been a nightmare and that being a millionaire is stressful.

      Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011 – making them the 22nd richest people in Scotland and propelling them onto the Sunday Times Rich List.

      Sadly, in April 2019, the pair announced they were divorcing. They had been married for 38 years before being hit by the lottery curse, and shared two grown-up children, Carly and Jamie.

      Just three months later, Colin tragically died of kidney failure and sepsis aged 72.

      The odds of winning the Millionaire Maker

      According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

      This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw's jackpot.

      On a Friday, it's estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

      If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.

      Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.

      The odds can also change if there is a special event.

      In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.
