A self-employed builder that won the EuroMillions jackpot has returned to work this December, despite being set for life by the monumental win.
Steve Thomson of Selsey, West Sussex won a colossal £105m in the EuroMillions on November 19th, instantly transforming his life overnight.
However, the 42-year-old construction worker has kept his promise to fulfil his job commitments and can be currently found lugging boxes and driving his old van as usual.
The Value of Service
The EuroMillions win gives Steve a net worth higher than both Daniel Radcliffe (£90m) and Harry Styles (£64m), making him the ninth biggest winner in the history of the National Lottery.
Regardless of his bank account value, the value of quality service clearly means just as much to Thomson, who continues to honour his word and his commitments this winter.
While he could very easily be catching rays on a tropical beach, the humble labourer continues to help out his business partner with jobs lined up over the Christmas period.
A Total Legend
Described by locals as a “total legend”, Thomson aims to be “sensibly generous” with his winnings, adding that he wants to do whatever he can to help his local community along the way.
Speaking after the win, the loyal builder had this to say:
“Once I’m over the shock I’ll need to keep doing something - I’m not the type just to sit still. My business partner knows if he needs a hand I’ll be there.”
Constructing A Future
The incredible story shows that once a builder, always a builder, and that money doesn’t always have to change the person.
In the case of Mr Thomson, his love and passion for his business and the building trade stays strong, even though he no longer needs to lift a finger, proving once again how fun and infectious a self-employed business and the “be your own boss” mindset can be.
