Whitsunday Times - - NEWS - Peter Car­ruthers Peter.Car­ruthers@ news­re­gional­me­dia.com.au

ONE lucky Can­non­vale res­i­dent woke to fan­tas­tic news yes­ter­day morn­ing in the form of a Cash Cow call from the Sunrise team.

Bar­bara McGre­gor an­swered the $90,000 Cash Cow call at 7.43am and was watch­ing the show on TV when she an­swered.

“Oh my god ... this a ab­so­lutely amaz­ing,” she said.

When asked what she was go­ing to do with the money she didn’t have to think for long.

“I am from Wol­lon­gong and have been up here (in north Queens­land) for 27 years and haven’t been able to get home since 2001,” she said.

“I have got fam­ily and lots of won­der­ful friends, I have got a cousin in Perth I would like to go and see.”

She told the pre­sen­ters of Sunrise her car was off the road at the mo­ment and it’s over 20-years-old.

Sam Army­tage said Barb could now buy a Win­nebago and visit all the relatives around Aus­tralia.

David Koch asked Bar­bara to talk about her­self.

She said she lived alone, was in her early 70s, and was never lucky enough to have chil­dren.

Kochie then asked where you go for a cel­e­bra­tion in Can­non­vale, Barb an­swered “prob­a­bly the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel”.

Barb said she had been a long-time mem­ber of the lo­cal Lions Club and said there was a meet­ing tonight (last night).

“Boy, have I got some news for them,” she said.
