No joke, you?ve won a new car

By EMMA CORNFORD

WHEN Natalie Hollier left Shoppingworld yesterday, she didn't have her usual stash of weekly groceries.

But she wasn't disappointed, because in place of the usual fruit, vegetables, milk and bread, Mrs Hollier had a brand new car.

The Grafton resident won the Toyota Kluger, worth $44,000, in the Woolworths Go for Gold competition.

"They called me to tell me I'd won and I just couldn't believe it," Mrs Hollier said.

"I had to call them back the next day to confirm it, because I thought it was someone in my family playing a trick on me."

The prize drew a lot of attention yesterday, with shoppers walking past and craning their necks to see who had won the massive golden car on display in front of Woolies.

"Did she win? She's got to be stoked," said one man.

Mrs Hollier put five entries in the national competition, but said she never expected to actually win the car, which was up for grabs to NSW residents.

"My husband couldn't believe it either ? he was shocked. We only have one car at the moment, so yes, now we'll have two. But this one's mine," she said.

"I've really never won anything in my life. Not a scratchie, nothing. This is such a fantastic car so it's really exciting."

Although not sure what she'll do with the prize just yet, Mrs Hollier said a little bit of bragging might be on the cards.

"I'll be driving around to show my friends, that's for sure. I still just can't believe it."
