A group of lottery winners worth almost £100 million volunteered at Troon beach to help keep the beauty spot litter free ahead of the school summer holidays.

In total, 19 previous lottery winners from across Scotland took part as they scoured the coastline for litter and tiny pieces of plastic waste which can be harmful to wildlife.Environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful teamed up with the group who were also given an insight into the types of rubbish which are regularly found dropped or washed up on the shoreline.Included in the team of volunteers was Fred Higgins who won £57.9 million in 2018, Alison and John Doherty who won £14 million in 2016 and Steve Glover who won £1 million last year.Alison said: “It has been a truly wonderful experience working alongside Keep Scotland Beautiful and in an area I would frequently visit as a child.“Myself and fellow winners support numerous charities throughout the year and it is always a great feeling to be doing something so worthwhile.“The coastline is close to my heart and Keep Scotland Beautiful has really made me think even further about all of the little things which we can all do to ensure we are all living in the best possible environments.”EuroMillions winner Fred added: “I cannot believe some of the items which we have picked up.

It really is quite unbelievable what can be washed up on our beautiful beaches.“The beaches are here for everyone and it is just fabulous to get involved in such a worthwhile project which so many people will benefit from.”Steve said: “I moved to Scotland’s glorious highlands and the coast following my National Lottery win – which made this dream possible.
