Rod Stewart left nearly £10,000 in tips for the 5-star hotel staff: he previously made a generous gift to refugees from Ukraine
British rock musician Rod Stewart made a generous gift to the staff of the 5-star Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland, where he celebrated the victory of the local football team Celtic over Rangers. The legendary rocker added 10 thousand pounds (almost 500 thousand hryvnias) to the check for the service.
The artist, his wife, and children "actually lived in the hotel," The Mirror writes. The family also celebrated the New Year there, as evidenced by the photos of Penny Lancaster, Stewart's wife, on Instagram.
The hotel staff said that before checking out, the musician not only gave them a generous tip but also ordered them to multiply it.
He was allegedly so inspired by the victory of his favorite team that he advised Gleneagles employees to "bet on Scotland to win the trophy at Euro 2024."
This is not the first time the rocker has helped people in need or simply made generous gifts. Recently, he donated 5 thousand pounds to a student nurse at the National Health Service who was seriously ill with COVID-19 and had to suspend her career.
Prior to that, the British man had kindly offered to rent a house for the Ukrainian refugees and paid for the family's financial expenses. Five children got a chance for a new life thanks to the kindness of the British musician.
They were so grateful to Rod Stewart that he was inspired to continue supporting Ukrainians. For example, the rocker and his nephew Warren manned several humanitarian trucks that went to Ukraine, and at the border, they picked up another 16 refugees who were going to Berlin.
As OBOZ.UA wrote, the Ukrainians were supported by porn actor Johnny Sins, known as "The Bald Man from Brazzers." However, the Russians did not like his act, so the propagandists launched a failed fake.
