Gen­er­ous giv­ing this Christ­mas

Dalby Herald - - BEST OF THE WEST -

CHRIST­MAS was a lit­tle more merry for one fam­ily this year.

The ADRA Op Shop in Chin­chilla ran adraw this month for a ham­per worth $150.

As part of the draw, cus­tomers re­ceived a ticket for ev­ery $10 they spent.

Shop su­per­vi­sor Paul An­der­son said the draw had equated to about $1000 spent all up (100 tick­ets).

“The lady who won it ac­tu­ally comes from Roma,” Mr An­der­son said.

“She pur­chased a tread­mill from us last week­end and she was en­ti­tled to many tick­ets. We gave them to her and she said ‘no put them back in and give it to a needy fam­ily’, which is now some­thing we re­ally can do that we’re very happy about.”
