I could have a lot of fun with 12 million!

I'd make sure my kids had enough to be comfortable for the rest of their lives. I'd also ensure that other close relations had generous amounts.

I'd buy a gorgeous home overlooking the sea somewhere really nice and I'd travel to all sorts of interesting places.

I'd also really enjoy setting up various projects which might make a real difference to some people. It must be great to perhaps build schools for needy children in 3rd world countries or have wells dug so villages could have clean water.

Many years ago my mother-in-law was poorly in a geriatric ward not long after one of my toddlers had been in a children's ward. I was struck by how poor the facilities were for old folks compared with all the toys and books for the children. I'd like to make life in hospital pleasanter for old people.

Ooh yes! I could spend it. But think of it more as redistribution of wealth!

No I couldn't spend £12 million but what I would do is see my 2 daughters and 3 grandsons without mortgages and with enough to live comfortably.

The rest would give me so much happiness sharing it between the NSPCC
and Cancer Research.

I would love to rip up the mortgage agreements of a couple of really good friends who didnt abandon us when we fell on hard times a few years ago.

I would like to be able to pay for medical care for all those the NHS refuse to

I would like to help out a few people on GR who have problems but always smile through

guess I could find a way of spending it after all

Couldnt spend that much in a month of Sundays, don't need or really want anything other than a new clothes maiden (airer) one I've had for years collapsed on me yesterday, would most likely go the same way as any money we've had in the past, charities and children. set them up for life.

Hi Colin,

I would make sure my family and people who are real mates were provided for,

Would buy my dream house, maybe a villa abroad as we never seem to be able to afford holidays,

Give a lot to the charities I support,

Set up my own animal sanctuary for abandoned horses, dogs etc.
