Weekly shop gets rewarded
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
