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.
