A Mount Isa couple are celebrating the luck of the draw after winning the major raffle from the St Joseph’s Christmas Fair.

Ron and Eleanor Stickland were surprised to hear they were the lucky winners of the Mazda CX-3 Neo.

“We were definitely not expecting to win,” Mr Stickland said.

“We purchased about $200 worth of tickets to support the school and the Parents and Friends Committee.

“The car will be put to good use. It will be nice to have an upgrade on our other vehicle.”

Mrs Stickland said they were strong supporters of St Joseph’s after their children attended the school and more recently their grandchildren.

“We are always at the school for different events,” Mrs Stickland said.

“I am sure the grandchildren will enjoy riding in this new car as much as we will.”
