Weekly shop gets re­warded

Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On - REXINE HAWES

He­len Wil­liams weekly shop­ping spree has paid off in a big way.

Last week the lo­cal New World shop­per drove away in her brand new Holden Spark, as part of a New World pro­mo­tion.

Ev­ery per­son who spent $50 in store dur­ing Au­gust went into the draw for the shiny four door car in rac­ing black.

In early Septem­ber Wil­liams got the call from Mata­mata New World owner Matthew Hart that she was the lucky win­ner, and was able to drive it home last week.

‘‘She was pretty ex­cited,’’ says Hart.

‘‘Peo­ple love get­ting free stuff and it’s cool to be able to give away some­thing of value.’’

Wil­liams was, as you would ex­pect, ‘‘pretty wrapped’’ by her big win.

‘‘I couldn’t be­lieve it. These things don’t hap­pen to or­di­nary peo­ple, it’s lovely to have it. I’m go­ing to keep it.’’

Wil­liams says the last time she won any­thing was a trip 12 years ago through a ra­dio com­pe­ti­tion.

Her hus­band Kevin has his own ve­hi­cle, but Wil­liams says she will let him drive it.

But she made it clear the new car is go­ing to be for her own per­sonal use.

‘‘It’s beau­ti­ful and size,’’ she says.

The car was pre­pared by Nicholson Auto’s Mata­mata, and Chris Holmes had the priv­i­lege of hand­ing the keys over to Hart. just my
