Lotto Sister Tight With Brother Powell

by | 25th, June 2007

PICTURE the scene. Your lucky sibling has just won a whopping £9.3million on the Lottery. Then, you hear it, the tantalizing sound of a letter dropping through the letter-box. How much will your brother or sister have given you? Half-a-million at least, surely?

Well, for poor old Len Powell, that cheque, from sister Irene, was for just £1,000, a measly 0.010638 of his Lottery millionaire sibling’s enormous winnings. To add insult to injury, the offending cheque came with a hand written note which read, “Hope it will help you out with the struggle with money.”

Len’s son, 37-year-old Mark, who actually opened the letter, framed it with a copy of the cheque and placed it on his parents’ mantelpiece.

At the time of their massive win, Irene, 69, and her husband Ron promised to look after their close relatives. Says Irene: “We are wondering how to spend the money but one thing’s for sure – we’re going to take our time and ensure that all are loved ones are taken care of”.

When questioned yesterday about the grand slap in the face to her brother, Irene said, “I’m not going to say anything about money because it only stirs things up.”

Indeed it does.
