Woolies win for sick kids
WITH a mere $2 ticket, Warwick's Trish Higgins not only did her part for a good case but also snagged herself $2000 worth of groceries this week.
Mrs Higgins was the winner of the latest Woolworths fundraiser in aid of the Royal Children's Hospital.
Her generosity did not end with purchasing the ticket, with plans to share her windfall.
"I think I will share it with my family and friends - my grandchildren will think it is ideal.
"I am just overjoyed and thrilled because when I bought the ticket I didn't give it another thought until the told me I had won," she said.
Store manager Peter Collis and store champion Jan Butler said they were pleased with the $8000 raised store-wide during the raffle.
"We are really thankful to all the locals for their great support of this fundraiser for such a great cause," Mr Collis said.
Woolworths staff members were already planning their next fundraiser - with a different charity in mind for the first time.
Mrs Butler said the organisation's staff hoped to put their efforts toward helping the Warwick Hospital and would focus their next fundraiser on the facility.
Woolworths Warwick last year raised $38,000 for the Royal Children's Hospital and in October will know if it has topped that figure.
