Winning Lotto Ticket Seller Donates His Commission To Charity

The owner of the Londis Shop in Westmoreland Street in Dublin city, has said that he is going to donate his €5,000 seller’s commission, to Pieta House after selling a winning Lotto ticket at the weekend.

Speaking with Irishexaminer.ie from Carrauntoohil in Co Kerry on Sunday, owner Seamus Griffin said, "I am in Kerry with 165 people from the Londis store network doing a walk for Pieta House which is an amazing charity, and am delighted to donate my seller’s bonus to them."

It was announced earlier this month that host of Londis retailers, their family and friends were set to climb Ireland’s highest mountain, on Sunday 27 May in order to raise money and awareness for Pieta House.

Londis also pledged to donate 1c to Pieta House on every sale of its selected Londis Own Label products.

Reportedly, staff from Mr Griffins 13 stores who participated in the The 'Climb For Joy' initiative this year raised €35,000 for Pieta House - while the Londis Group in total raised more than €100,000 for the cause.

"We have had big wins through our stores before, but this is the first time we sold a Daily Million winning ticket." Griffin added.
