Lottery winner donates buses

The Changhua County Government held a ceremony on Monday to celebrate the donation of five wheelchair-lift mini buses to the county by a lottery winner. At the donation ceremony, Changhua County Commissioner Cho Po-yuan (卓伯源) thanked the anonymous donor and Taiwan Lottery Co, which helped supplement the donation. Cho said that the new vehicles will be used to serve county residents who are physically or mentally challenged. The vehicles will be available for use at an affordable price, he said. The vehicles, worth NT$10 million (US$340,000), were donated by a civil servant living in New Taipei City (新北市) who won NT$1.5 billion in April with a lottery ticket he purchased in Changhua County, according to Taiwan Lottery. The winner decided to donate NT$120 million of the prize money to charity.
