London, July 27 (IANS) A Briton who won a 7.7 million pounds in a lottery has promised to continue working for the sake of his employees who had even worked for free to save his recession-hit firm.
There is no longer any need for Ivan Westbury, 64, to go to work. But he has pledged to keep working to save the jobs of his 30 employees.

Westbury, who supplies lightning protection, shared the win with his wife Susan.

“It couldn’t have come at a better time. Everyone’s job is secure.

“The staff have stood behind us through tough times when the banks wouldn’t help us. So we can’t just walk away and leave them in the lurch now. There are no jobs out there,” News of the World Tuesday quoted Westbury as saying.
