Seven Stories presented with Lottery award by Mollie King from The Saturdays - Journal Live

She moved to Hagersville, Ont., and, once Vinny was out of jail, they spent some time in Edmonton. They moved around a lot. Today, Hamiltons penniless millionaires live on a quiet industrial street not far from where she started. The walls of the modest home are covered in family photos and the odd relic from flashier times Michael Jackson memorabilia for her, Maple Leafs mementos for him. The Tirabassis worry about people knowing where they live. The win didnt make them a lot of friends and they fear being robbed. A lot of people do still think she has lots of money, Vinny says. How much is enough? The Dodge Charger and Hummer are nowhere in sight. The Cadillacs in storage; it needs work Tirabassi cant afford right now. When shes not taking the bus, she drives a hot pink electric bike. A lot of friends are gone, too. Loans were not repaid. (They said) theyve got enough so theyre OK, right? Vinny says. The Tirabassis advise other lottery winners to be wary of sharing their winnings too freely. Keep it to yourself and dont trust anybody but family, she says. But as she heads to work in her scrubs Wednesday, Tirabassi says she couldnt help give so much away. Thats the way I was brought up. Help those who cant help themselves. Rather than mourn the millions, shes concentrating on raising her kids with those same family values.

Im Mollie from The Saturdays and Im here to tell you that you guys have won the National Lottery Award, she declared. The parents, who had probably all heard of The Saturdays, whooped and cheered so their children did likewise. Mollie said she was delighted to present the award to Seven Stories because it was a place that encouraged reading and storytelling. She said she grew up with dyslexia so had found reading difficult. Alison Gwynn, programme director at Seven Stories, said she was delighted to receive the award. It had come after Seven Stories national status was made official, allowing it to style itself the National Centre for Childrens Books. The difference this time was that it was public votes that had secured a national accolade. Our aim is to inspire a love of reading across generations, she said. National lottery funding has helped us so much and receiving this award is superb recognition for the hard work of the entire team and, of course, everyone who enjoys our programmes. Seven Stories, which opened in a former Victorian warehouse in Byker in 2005, has received 660,000 in national lottery funding from Arts Council England and 352,249 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It welcomes more than 70,000 visitors a year, is building a valuable archive of manuscripts and illustrations, and is becoming renowned for its lively and appealing touring exhibitions. Mollie King said afterwards that she was delighted to take any opportunity to pass on the message that dyslexia need not be a major setback. She recalled that she had hated reading aloud at school. The problem with dyslexia is people can sometimes jump to the conclusion, Oh, shes thick. My spelling is fine but I always had difficulties with reading.
