Colac’s Joy Wright says it pays to stop and chat in the street, after winning a brand new car in Trinity College Colac’s annual car raffle.
Joy said she was shocked to hear she had won Tuesday night’s draw, after she bought a single ticket off a friend off-handedly and almost forgot about the raffle.
“I was absolutely speechless – which is very unusual for me. It was an unbelievable feeling and it was hard to shut me up afterwards. I’ve never won anything like this!” she said.
Joy said she hadn’t planned to buy a ticket when she struck up conversation with a friend who was selling them outside Blanes Newsagency.
