lOTTERY WINNERS from Yorkshire gave a merry makeover to the children’s ward at Leeds General Infirmary and homeless charity St George’s Crypt.

The eight winners-turned-Santas delivered presents, hampers and Christmas trees and helped to put up festive decorations.

Graham and Amanda Nield, who won £6m in 2013, said: “We thoroughly appreciate the hard work both these nurses and carers do on a daily basis and charity is very near and dear to our hearts, especially with Amanda’s father currently needing full time care for Alzheimer’s disease. Christmas isn’t only just an important time for children but for the homeless as well and so to be able to show our support in this way feels very rewarding.”
