Lottery winner giving all his winnings to charity

A Canadian man who won a 40 million Canadian dollar lottery prize last May has said that he is going to give all his winnings away.

Tom Crist said the money would be donated to charities that he supported over the next few years through a family foundation.

Mr Crist (seen standing on the right next to his son) said that he decided to give the money away in memory of his wife, who died of cancer.
