Win­ner of $500 fuel voucher is pumped

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS ONLINE -

RIS­ING fuel prices hit our hip-pock­ets hard, which is why we thought we would give one lucky reader the chance not to have to worry about bowser prices by giv­ing away a $500 fuel voucher.

The Coffs Coast Ad­vo­cate

held the com­pe­ti­tion over two weeks and re­ceived more than 1500 en­tries with the win­ner drawn on Mon­day.

Pauline O’Car­ri­gan orig­i­nally thought the voice

❝I don’t think I’ve won some­thing since I was 12. — Pauline O’Car­ri­gan

mail left on her phone was a hoax.

Af­ter re­turn­ing the call to our of­fice, she was rapt to be the win­ner of the fuel voucher.

“I don’t think I’ve won some­thing since I was 12 in a ten­nis com­pe­ti­tion,” she said.

Pauline called her friends and fam­ily who were all just as ex­cited to hear she’d won.

The cheap­est fuel on the Coffs Coast yes­ter­day:

Ethanol 94 (E10) – United Petroleum Coffs Cen­tral at 136.7.

Un­leaded 91 – In­de­pen­dent Coffs Har­bour, 33 Ocean Pde at 132.9.

Premium 95 – In­de­pen­dent Toormina, 1/1 Craft Close at 143.9.
