Local media reports that A 71-year-old man in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region who won a lottery jackpot of 5RMB million (US$620,000) has donated all of the money to charity.

Surnamed Wang, the man is a retired worker with the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps in Changji.

"My only wish to make use of the prize for myself is to buy a new radio," Wang was quoted by the Xinjiang Economic Daily as saying.

On November 21, when Wang arrived at the lottery complex in Urumqi to receive his prize, he donated the first batch of rmb500,000 to a charity project aimed at financing schooling of impoverished students.

Wang donated the remaining RMB3.5 million to charity affairs through a Catholic organization, sources with the Xinjiang Welfare Lottery Center said.
