MILDURA’S Sharon Collings couldn’t believe her luck when she was announced as the winner of a Kangaroo Island holiday for two.

Only moments before receiving the call she had been catching up with a friend and discussing her urgent need for a holiday.

“I couldn’t believe it – I never win anything,” she said.

“I have been here for four years, buying the paper every day and was in desperate need of a holiday.

“I am working two jobs and have worked every second weekend since moving here.”

The Sunraysia Daily, Sealink Holidays and Helloworld Travel prize includes two return ferry fares, a standard vehicle from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw, two nights’ accommodation at the Kangaroo Island Seaside Inn Hotel, two Kangaroo Island Ocean Safaris and lunch at Dudley Wines.

The total package is valued at $1118.

“I can’t wait. I have never been before so I am looking forward to the ferry ride and the peace and quiet,” Ms Collings said.

“I will be taking my partner with me who (also) couldn’t believe it – he was rapt.

“I am pretty lucky. I never dreamt this would happen.”

Ms Collings said she plans to take the holiday as soon as possible.
