Ipswich millionaires got into the Christmas spirit this week by donating a giant gingerbread house to an Essex charity.
Richard and Cathy Brown, who won a whopping £6.1million in July 2013, worked for several hours to help build a gingerbread-themed playhouse.
The festive wood cabin now hopes to support adults with learning disabilities at the Rochford-based Roots and Shoots project.
Ms Brown said: “I know that National Lottery funding helps so many organisations but it’s great to witness first hand the effect of funding, and all made possible by National Lottery players.
“While our life has been changed overnight with the win, it’s good to know that other incredibly important projects just like this are also lottery winners.

“We’ve had a great time working with the project on the gingerbread house and I really hope this gift will help Roots and Shoots continue to grow and develop to help many more people in the future. The team here are an inspiration and deserve our support.”
