Two lottery winners helped spread some festive cheer when they visited the elderly at a Sheffield community centre.

Ray and Barbara Wragg – who won £7.6million in 2000 – paid a visit to Lower Shiregreen Luncheon Club at Shiregreen Community Centre in Sicey Avenue.

They met about 15 members of the community who meet for lunch there every week.

The couple took along a hamper of festive goodies, donated by lottery organisers Camelot, and made a generous donation to the group which will pay for its Christmas lunch next week.

Ray said: “We had a lovely time and they seemed pleased to see us. The hamper looked wonderful. I told them the cheque wouldn’t bounce.”

The Whirlow couple, who used to live in Jordanthorpe with their three children, have donated tens of thousands of pounds to worthy causes in South Yorkshire since they struck lucky 13 years ago.

They will also deliver a hamper and a cheque to Park Hill Lodge, Maltby, a centre for people with special needs, where they have been going for more than 10 years.
