New car delivers owner a $10,000 surprise
KATHLEEN Gibbons doesn’t normally have much luck when it comes to winning but that changed when she won two prizes in one week.
The Tokoroa Forest View teacher was the lucky winner of $10,000 in the Wings and Wheels Hyundai’s new car promotion which she entered after recently buying a car from the Taupo-based dealership. She also won $85 from her Lotto ticket in the same week.
Gibbons said she couldn’t believe she had won.
‘‘I had actually forgotten all about it so when they rang up I said ‘is this a hoax?’.
‘‘I was pleased to win and just before Christmas is a great time and I have decided to go on a cruise around the islands for 10 days in April so hopefully the weather will be good.’’
Wings and Wheels Hyundai’s Chris Drysdale said the competition centred on the sale of 10 vehicles which gave their new owners the chance to win.
