Loyal DEX reader picks up $1000
AILSA Powell could not believe her luck.
Mrs Powell was yesterday told she had won $1000 in The Daily Examiner's six-day subscriber competition which ran throughout June.
"I'm a pensioner and more or less on my own, so the money will come in very handy. I'm over the moon," she said.
"I was picked out of all the subscribers? That's not normally my luck, that's lovely."
Mrs Powell said she loved reading her Daily Examiner, something she had been doing every day since moving to Yamba 65 years ago.
She said she had become a subscriber when her late husband became too sick to walk into town to collect their copy of the paper.
Mrs Powell said she enjoyed all sections of the paper, and it was an important part of her daily routine.
"I look forward to having my brekky and reading the paper," she said.
"I like the sport in particular because I've been sporty all my life, but I like reading it all."
The six-day subscriber competition was open to all six-day subscribers of The Daily Examiner, and Mrs Powell's name was pulled out of a barrel filled with hundreds of entries.
Daily Examiner general manager Steve Portas congratulated Mrs Powell on her win, and thanked all subscribers for their continued and valued reader- ship.
