Luck­i­est shop­per in town

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS was look­ing pretty bleak for Kim and War­ren Cole­man but that thanks to the Gazette and IGA they will now be able to en­joy the fes­tive sea­son with their fam­ily af­ter win­ning free gro­ceries for a year.

Reg­u­lar shop­pers at IGA, they en­tered the Gazette’s Lucky Shop­per com­pe­ti­tion which of­fered the ma­jor prize of get­ting free gro­ceries for a whole year.

The hus­band and wife team were very happy and could not be­lieve their good for­tune.

“It re­ally is fab­u­lous and the win couldn’t have come at a bet­ter time,” Mrs Cole­man said. Mr Cole­man was equally chuffed. “This is won­der­ful. Kim and I have had a very tough 12 months and we wanted to have our fam­ily with us at Christ­mas but we couldn’t af­ford it but this win makes all the dif­fer­ence,” Mr Cole­man said.

“The win and the gen­eros­ity of the Gazette and IGA sim­ply means we can now in­vite our fam­ily to come and join us for Christ­mas . . . it’s just won­der­ful.”

The Cole­man’s moved to Port Dou­glas 12 years ago and live at Four Mile.

Al­most as de­lighted were run­ner-up win­ners Lyn Heimann and Belinda Hardi­man, who each won gift vouch­ers val­ued at $500 to spend at lo­cal re­tail out­lets that par­tic­i­pated in the Lucky Shop­per pro­mo­tion.

IGA man­ager Paul Scott said it was a great feel­ing to bring joy to peo­ple so close to Christ­mas.

“It’s some­thing that changes peo­ple’s lives and we’re de­lighted to be a part of it,” he said.
