THE winner of the Supa IGA Warwick grocery grab, Jenny Wallace, racked up a record breaking bill totalling $1073.10 yesterday and she is donating every single item.

Ms Wallace, a diversional therapist at Akooromak, said they needed the groceries more than she did.

"My plan is to get things for the happy hour event we hold on Fridays," she said.

"I'm going to grab sweets, drinks and chips. I think everyone is doing it really hard at work and watching their budget and anything that helps out is a bonus."

Along with chips and lollies Ms Wallace grabbed a home brew kit, yoghurt maker and soda stream machine.

"We are holding a men's night and they could really use the home brew kit," she said.

Ms Wallace said a big thank-you to Supa IGA Warwick.
