Particularly at this time of year the lure of winning the lottery is a dream shared by a lot of us – £1,000,000 is certainly a life changing sum of money. Yet what could you get for your money?
a 1 Million pound house?
4 Average houses in the UK?
125 Alienware top spec PC’s?
2,000 Virtual Colonoscopy MRI scans?
4,000 Samsung Galaxy Tab 3’s?
52,632 £19 donations to the Salvation Army to help family’s at Christmas? (https://salvationarmyappeals.org.uk/form.asp?id=894&gclid=CJulroyLt7sCFXMgtAodVV0AjQ)
500,000 Lotto Tickets?
1,000,000 items from Pound World?
100,000,000 Penny sweets?
With 1000’s of possiblities it would be hard to know where to start, but I like to believe that anybody in this fortunate position would see fit to “share the wealth” as my nextdoor neighbour is fond of saying – essentially a boiled down form of Karma – Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.
If it were me a big chunk would be going to charity, with the rest dished out between my close friends and family – what use is the money if you have got no one to share it with.
How would you spend your Millions? Please leave me a comment to let me know.
