THE Eurolottery winners Colin and Christine Weir gave another £1 million to the SNP in the first few months of this year, new data from the Electoral Commission reveals.
A list of political donations for the first three months of 2015 showed that Mr and Mrs Weir gave £500,000 each to Nicola Sturgeon’s party.
According to the Commission’s figures, the total donated to the SNP since 2011 now stands at £4,005,000.
In addition to their contribution to party funds they also donated a further £1 million to Yes Scotland in the run up to last year’s referendum.
The couple from Ayrshire have been the independence cause’s most generous benefactors since they won the £161 million jackpot in 2011.
Since their big win, the couple have also made donations to various good causes.
