A heartbroken man who bought a holiday to Malta for his girlfriend has decided to give it away after they split up.

Tom Frankenburg, from Nottingham, posted a video on YouTube called Tom Goes Crazy and Gives His Holiday Away in which he says he will give the July trip to the most deserving person.

The 22-year-old guitar teacher says in his three-and-a-half minute video that he is donating the trip as a way to get over his break-up and to make the world a better place.

He says: “We live in a broken world – a place where people get hurt, where war happens, where equality just doesn’t exist, and I want to fix it.

“Obviously I can’t fix everything but I can fix it a little bit and hopefully this video will inspire you to do the same, even if it’s just a little thing.”

The holiday, from July 3 to 10, includes return flights to Malta from East Midlands Airport, a stay at a four-star hotel and car rental.

Mr Frankenburg said he will even chip in towards the £35 bmibaby charges for changing the names on the plane tickets.

Yesterday he said he had had about 30 email responses and more than 2,000 views since uploading the video on Saturday.

He said: “The majority of responses are not people nominating themselves. It’s actually people nominating other people, which is really nice actually, that people are doing that.”
