Good Samaritan Wins Country House in Raffle

A man who has spent years helping disabled people find homes has won a £2.5 million ($3m) country house in a raffle.

Grant Carson hit the jackpot by winning a five-bedroom farmhouse complete with eight acres of the beautiful Lake District, in north west England, after entering the Omaze Million Pound House Draw.

The 58-year-old windower said that he can now get a dog, which was what he always wanted, but was always out of the question due to chronic arthritis he has had since he was seven. Carson worked at the same Glasgow charity for nearly three decades helping disabled people with all aspects of life, and had never won anything before. He was understandably stunned when the Omaze team surprised him at his three-bedroom home in Glasgow.

The new home is surrounded by “idyllic countryside” and he can “definitely afford a dog walker,” because along with the house he was also given £100,000 ($122,000) in cash.

"It’s not your average Friday night that someone comes to your door and tells you that you’ve won a £2,500,000 house,” said Carson. “I might be one of the luckiest men in Scotland.”

“I’ve just left my old job helping disabled people across Glasgow, which I had done for 27 years, but this win has given me a financial security I’d never dreamed of, which means I can focus on my new venture helping organizations to meet the needs of disabled customers with a lot less pressure.”

Carson is not compelled to live in or keep the house. He can either move in, rent it, or sell it.
