The Winner Is… Carol!
Check out the new competition for a chance to win £20.
On day 6 of the competition, Carol said she would spend £1,000 on a very worthwhile new business. “I would build kennels & a cattery onto our cottage & start up a business giving temporary foster homes to help out overcrowded animal rescue places.” My sister and I dream of running a similar business, and I used to foster kittens in my own home, so this answer really stood out to me 🙂

I would buy my house, so my children always have a home.
After I have bought myself a mobility scooter as well as some other mobility aids, and had a wonderful holiday as I haven’t been on holiday in 15 years I would buy myself and both of my daughters a house each as well as help bankroll each of us independently set up our own businesses. Boring and sensible I know but I just want my girls to be set up for life and watch them enjoy and thrive from what would’ve been their inheritance.
I would go on a round the world trip then buy some land for my horses that are currently knee deep in mud!
treat the whole family by giving them money and then buy a one way ticket to a destinationstill to be decided 😀
I would enjoy the look on my husbands face .. when i hand over the cheque & say, ‘You don’t have to go to work tomorrow’!
I will open the pub
If I had £1 million, I would…travel the world.
I would donate £500,000 to the special care baby unit and another £500,000 to a children’s cancer ward.
Share with family, friends and charities close to my heart
Would love to travel a bit and maybe set a business, I always loved the thought of running a snazzy vintage tea & cake shop
I would invest in so that I could get a lovely large passive income that would allow my husband to give up his stressful job.
leave work and do something that i would enjoy
Buy several houses and start renting them out to families with pets who wanted to stay longer than 6 months
I used for education purpose for me and also our surrounding
Pay off debts, new house and car and start a business.
decisions,decisions,I wish,lol! Uhhmmm,pay off debts and give a share to all the members of our immediate family and possibly finally go abroad on a holiday.
I would faint! Then I would pay all my debts off. Treat my family anday friends and invest rest.
Meant and my friends!
Pay off my mortgage and the mortgages of my brother and my 2 sister-in-laws. Then buy a nice car.
If i had £1 million i would probably pass out!!! No seriously i would build a new home and make sure it was adapted to fit all my disabled son’s needs. I would also fly him out to Barcelona to meet his hero Messi ? I would also give some money to Alder Hey Kidney Fund for all the fantastic work that they do.
Make sure my 3 older sons had good homes to live in & help to set up the animal rescue centre one wants to build with his partner then get one purpose built for myself & my youngest (who is autistic) including soft play & light rooms, lots of secure storage for everything we need to keep away from him, employ a full time assistant both to help him & to provide a companion closer to his own age for him – oh yes, & get a Star Trek style transporter to avoid the stress he feels travelling between places.… Read more »
If i had £1 Million I would buy the house that my family so deserves and invest £500,000 into helping people start up businesses ect. What a great question today I’m loving reading everyones answers. Good luck everyone.?
I already run a business and it was really hard work to set up so not sure I would want another one! Although maybe the cash could pay someone to do the hard work for me……..!
I would use the money to design a website to start an internet based company. Perhaps even a free lottery site of my own so that there would be yet another site to help make someone’s day!
Like to start a small care home for the elderly. Giving the best service possible. Treating them like they deserve to be treated as family.
I would set up a small cafe called ” Maggies Muffins ” as I’ve been told I make the most fantastic muffins and cakes ?
do lots of research first to check it was the right thing to do
I’d buy wool for my online craft store. It’s not even a business yet. But maybe one day!
I would build kennels & a cattery onto our cottage & start up a business giving temporary foster homes to help out overcrowded animal rescue places.
Probably make a free lottery website because they are fab!
give it to my son & his partenr who want to set up a pet recue home for those who can’t be rehomed
…carefully consider my options before chosing what to do.
I would go do buisness studies to do my dream job of owning a pub
use it to pay for a course so I had the skills to succeed
If i had £1,000 to start a buisness i would run an open house where parent’s and carer’s of adults and children with complex and additional needs could go for advice and support or just a cuppa and a chat, and to meet up with other people in the same situation. There is nowhere in my local area and with all the cuts i doubt there will be anytime soon.
Hiya I’m just a bit confused ? I was up last night and checking the site regularly, but there wasn’t a winner until this morning which was 7th March but it said there would be a winner on 6th hence my confusion please put me right Mr or Missus Win Wonga?
Hi Sean. There was a £50 winner at 11pm last night.
I know sorry Wonga I’ve only just read my email but I can’t delete this comment ? so anyone reading “IGNORE THIS MESSAGE ” lol
Lol no worries Sean 😛
If I had a 10% pay rise, I would think I worked for the government!
If I had a 10% pay rise, I would be very amazed but glad. But anyway I will not work harder just because it’s a gift from Heaven…
Not be much better off!!
might be able to save a penny rather than struggle by every month!
I’d die of shock – I’m worth more dead anyway! ?
thank my boss
be amazed! But it might make up for the fact that they keep reducing my hours ..
Go on holiday
be ecstatic – this has never happened to me before
It would mean about £7 to me I would treat myself to a special meal
actually starting putting some money into savings, although the first month I might treat myself a little 🙂
If I had a 10% pay rise, I would cry with joy
I would put my 10% into a savings account for christmas
If I had a 10% pay rise I would cream the extra off each month in to savings (BORING!) and use it to treat us to a holiday (HURRAH!)
