Rapt to win raf­fle

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Tara Whitsed

It had been a stress­ful week for Tatura’s Carol Neave when she re­ceived an ex­cit­ing phone call.

Af­ter vis­it­ing her daugh­ter in hos­pi­tal, Ms Neave said she turned on her phone to dis­cover the news that she had won sec­ond place in The Com­mu­nity Fund GV’sMon­ster Raf­fle.

‘‘I was ab­so­lutely de­lighted,’’ Ms Neave said.

In need of a new fridge, Ms Neave said the sec­ond place Good Guys white goods pack­age was the per­fect prize.

The news came as a slight shock to Ms Neave who said she could not re­call where she had pur­chased the ticket from.

‘‘I thought— where’d I buy that?’’ she said, but fi­nally re­mem­bered it had been from Tatura Ro­tary Club sec­re­tary Jo Burgess.

Ms Neave thanked the Good Guys for the in­cred­i­ble prize at a cel­e­bra­tory event held at the Audi Cen­tre Shep­par­ton last week.

Rod­ney Arthur from the Good Guys Shep­par­ton said it was a priv­i­lege for them to be as­so­ci­ated with the raf­fle.

‘‘It’s re­ally good for Shep­par­ton,’’ Mr Arthur said. ‘‘Thank you for let­ting us be in­volved.’’ Strath­mer­ton’s Glenn Kelly took out the top prize — a brand new A1 Audi — in the huge raf­fle that saw $38 500 raised for the com­mu­nity.
