Lucky wins at Porirua shops

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By ES­THER LAUAKI

New World su­per­mar­kets in Porirua have proven to be lucky places to shop, with two ma­jor prizes go­ing to lo­cal res­i­dents.

Jenny Shaw has thou­sands of rea­sons to raise her wine glass af­ter win­ning a $10,000 travel voucher from pur­chas­ing a bot­tle of her favourite syrah from Porirua New World.

The Pau­ata­hanui res­i­dent said she could not be­lieve her luck.

‘‘This is the first time I’ve ever won any­thing . . . [The wine] was on spe­cial and I just de­cided to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion on­line when I saw the neck tag.

‘‘ It’s not some­thing I would usu­ally do.’’

A re­cently-planned trip to Syd­ney had been put off be­cause she and her hus­band could not af­ford it, Ms Shaw said – it’s cer­tainly back on the agenda now.

Syd­ney will be the first stop on the cou­ple’s big ad­ven­ture, to visit an ex­change stu­dent they took in years ago work­ing with Plim­mer­ton Ro­tary Club.

Next year they would go to Ja­pan to climb Mt Fu­jiyama, she said.

The pro­mo­tion was run by Mis­sion Es­tate Win­ery through New World stores na­tion­wide.

Mean­while, New World Pare­mata made Val Ro­drigo’s year last week when she won a trip for two to Singapore to watch the World Net­ball Cham­pi­onship fi­nal in July, 2011, in the store’s Shop, Scratch & Score pro­mo­tion. Ms Ro­drigo said she was ‘‘over the moon’’ with her prize.

She plans to take her hus­band along on the trip.
