A couple who won nearly £8-million (about R110-million) on the lottery have been told to stop giving away their money.

Ray and Barbara Wragg, from Sheffield, who won £7,6m on the lottery in 2000 have given away £6m of their fortune.

Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield and Sheffield Children's Hospital have been the main beneficiaries.

The couple have now been told by their financial advisor to stop giving away their cash.

According to the BBC, Mrs Wragg said: "We decided that £7,6m was too much for two people. If we could give more we would." - Ananova.com
