Lottery winner plans to give away chicken
Nosso Talho butcher Jose Lima was delighted to collect
his US$14.5 mln lottery cheque. With his money he plans to help the needy with
On 3 April, the native of Portuguese man "Joe from the butcher shop" wants
to give away 1,000 boxes of chicken legs to the customers - and the needy - of
the Bloor St. W. butcher shop where the manager has worked for 23 years. Lima
picked that day in honour of the memory of his father, Joao, who died five years
ago on April 3.
Not only will he provide food for the needy, but it has also been reported
that he will give each of the 50 employees at the Nosso Talho butcher shop a
cheque for $5,000.
"This is like a dream come true," he said, tears welling in his eyes as he
stared at the cheque handed to him by Sharon Johnson, from the Ontario Lottery
and Gaming Corporation office.
He said he plans to keep working. "Even though I won all this money I still
want to be Joe from the butcher shop."
