Cash Cow win for Kiewa Val­ley cou­ple to help with med­i­cal bills

Alpine Observer - - News - By ALEX CRAIG

AN­DREW Mel­rose has been en­ter­ing Chan­nel 7’s Sun­rise Cash Cow lot­tery ev­ery morn­ing for the past two years, but like most, never re­ally be­lieved he would ever win.

How­ever, last Mon­day was the Ta­wonga South res­i­dent’s lucky day with the Chan­nel 7 morn­ing show hosts call­ing his num­ber.

“I rang on Fri­day and gave them the code word as usual to go into Mon­day’s draw,” he said.

“On Mon­day morn­ing we were get­ting ready to go to Wodonga and weren’t even watch­ing Sun­rise, but I wouldn’t leave un­til they’d done the Cash Cow.

“My wife said, ‘Oh don’t worry, they’ll never ring you’, then my phone rang.

“You have to an­swer within three rings, and I an­swered in a split sec­ond, and there was Saman­tha Ar­mitage telling me I had won $10,000.

“I said ‘No way, this better not be a joke.’ “I was shak­ing like a leaf.” Mr Mel­rose and his wife have no plans to spend the money on a grand hol­i­day, as they can­not leave their menagerie of pets.

“My wife and I both have health prob­lems, so the money will mostly go to­wards med­i­cal bills,” Mr Mel­rose said.
