Fly­ing high af­ter give­away win

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

DAR­LING Downs res­i­dent Tarshia Bott said she hit the ceil­ing when she got the phone call telling her she was a week three win­ner in Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group’s $30,000 give­away.

“I lit­er­ally jumped out of my seat,” Ms Bott said.

Ms Bott plans to put her $1000 prize to­wards her travel sav­ings.

“I’ve never been over­seas, so I want to travel to Amer­ica, Europe; any­where on the other side of the world,” she said.

Another win­ner, Mt Hawthorn res­i­dent He­len Grif­fith, is also us­ing her win­nings for travel.

“I’m go­ing on a trip across six coun­tries in Europe in the spring, so I’m go­ing to put the money to­wards that,” Ms Grif­fith said.

She said she regularly reads her lo­cal news­pa­per, and other Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group edi­tions from around Perth.

“I en­joy read­ing about lo­cal is­sues be­cause they’re ev­ery day and you can re­late to them,” she said.

“I also like to keep up to date with com­mu­nity events.”

Thanks to Spud­shed, the $30,000 give­away is part of Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group’s 30th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.
