A lottery winner, Gillian Bayford, who won £148million (about GHS775 million) in 2012 has bought a new home for a mother of a severely disabled boy.
Gillian said she was moved by Jenny McMillan’s fundraising efforts for her son Blake who has a rare neurological disorder called MECP2 Duplication Syndrome.
The disorder made the boy unable to roll, walk, talk or sit. The boy also suffers regular seizures and needs round-the-clock care.

Gillian bought the house and will also pay for all the renovations that will make it suit Blake’s needs better.
A grateful Jenny believes this will make life so much easier on the family.
Jenny said, ‘I was totally in awe that Gillian would do something like this. I’ll be paying rent but Gillian didn’t have to do something like this. She’s doing me a massive favour.
I was in tears when she told me. I’m so grateful. I’ll be able to look after Blake in a safe and secure environment and it means the world.
‘In this house I can always be within eye shot of Blake. Gillian has given me peace of mind.’
Gillian, speaking in the wonderful gesture, says, ‘Jenny is a complete inspiration. She works so hard and if the fact that I can help bring Blake here then we’ll do it.’
Jenny and her family hope to move into the house in January.
