Sum­mer promo win­ner gifts her prize

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ALANNAH GREEN­WOOD

Af­ter sort­ing out her phone trou­bles on Mon­day morn­ing, Mul­wala’s Sue Cur­ran no­ticed she had a mes­sage on her voice­mail from the Corowa Free Press’ Ad­ver­tis­ing Con­sul­tant Dale Pegg.

Un­sure as to why Dale had made the call, Sue promptly called back and to her delight was in­formed that she was the win­ner of the Corowa Free Press Sum­mer Pro­mo­tion three­day com­edy cruise.

Sue’s name was pulled out of a bar­rel of more than 3000 en­tries in the lo­cal shop­ping cam­paign by Corowa Travel Link’s Sue Wynne on Mon­day morn­ing.

She will now be pre­sented the lucky tick­ets to a three-day com­edy cruise in Syd­ney, cour­tesy of Corowa Travel Link.

“I can’t be­lieve that I have won this prize,” Sue told the Free Press.

“I have only ever won a mi­crowave be­fore, so to win a cruise, this is just ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.

“I am so hum­bled and so pleased that I shopped lo­cally, I would urge ev­ery­one to do so as I try to shop lo­cal first when­ever I can and now it has re­ally paid off.”

It wasn’t long be­fore the Free Press of­fice re­ceived an­other ex­cited call from Sue where she went on to ex­plain that she would not be keep­ing the tick­ets for her­self, but she had plans to gift them to her two daugh­ters.

“Af­ter hop­ping off the phone I re­alised that we will be on hol­i­days in Queens­land when the cruise is set to run so I have made the de­ci­sion to give the tick­ets to my daugh­ters,” Sue said.

“I re­ally hope they en­joy the cruise to­gether, I am sure that it will be beau­ti­ful.”

The pro­mo­tion ran across the sum­mer months and cus­tomers who spent $30 or more in par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses were given a ticket.

Sue’s lucky lo­cal pur­chase was at Shine, a cloth­ing bou­tique in Sanger Street and this has now en­abled Shine to have an au­to­matic en­try into the next pro­mo­tion.

The Free Press would like to thank the fol­low­ing busi­nesses for tak­ing part in the 2017 Sum­mer Pro­mo­tion; Corowa Travel Link, Ori­gin Cloth­ing, Corowa Supa IGA, Brunella School­wear, Zest Stu­dio, Gyles Newsagency, Corowa Ho­tel, Corowa Cur­tains and Dé­cor, Shine, Meat on the Mur­ray and Bags n’ Boots.

Af­ter the suc­cess of this cam­paign, the Free Press is en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to keep their eyes peeled for yet an­other lo­cal shop­ping pro­mo­tion that is set to take place this win­ter.
