A man from the North East who recently won the lottery has stated he intends to spend the money opening a new gig venue in his hometown.

Andrew Garth, 29, from Middlesbrough, won £1 million in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle on Christmas Day and has told the press he wants to spend it on what he loves best.

Garth told reporters:

“I love live music but sadly Middlesbrough doesn’t offer the kind of taste that I like. I already have my eyes on a few places to buy, possibly near Teesside Park.”


Mr Garth currently works as a freelance light and sound events technician. He plans to spend the rest of his money paying off his parents’ mortgage.
