First time for raffle winner
Gordon Bell of Paraparaumu is this year’s winner of the annual trailer raffle (with ticket number 1207) conducted by the Rotary Club of Kapiti.
The prize consisted of the trailer, two junior bicycles, television and a large quantity of grocery items.
Total value was about $5000 and the surplus proceeds after costs amounting to about $8500 will be distributed to local Ka¯ piti youth charities.
Organisers of the raffle, Tim Mikkelsen and Murray Lobb, both members and past presidents of Kapiti Rotary, said, “This has been our most successful raffle to date and we will continue with this project because it carries a great deal of appeal to those who participate and provides funds for assisting youth projects in Kapiti.”
Mr Bell has lived in the Ka¯ piti district for over 20 years and was delighted with his win.
“This is the first time in my life that I have ever won anything,” he said.
