What a Feel Good Story from our 2021 raffle (Please read)

Each year Rotary Caboolture conducts the Christmas Trailer Raffle to help raise funds for projects. It is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year and always wonderfully supported by the community.

The club understands the troubling times that everyone has been going through and was pleasantly surprised when the latest raffle was different for two reasons. It turned out to be the club’s biggest ever when it came to ticket sales and the remarkable story behind the winners of the first prize.

The husband and wife of the family that won the trailer have been out of work due to health reasons for about twelve months and prior to the raffle had been looking at buying a second hand trailer to start up their own lawn mowing, garden care and external cleaning business sometime in the new year.

When they dropped into the Morayfield Shopping Centre one day they saw the Rotary raffle for the trailer filled with items, including a high pressure cleaner and blower, so they decided to buy a book of tickets in the hope that this could be their way to start up their business venture.

They had a good feeling about this and whenever they went to the shopping centre they would buy another book of tickets.

You can only imagine their surprise and relief when they received the Sunday morning phone call from the club to inform them of their win. They thought it was a joke at first.

Robyn said, “We would like to start off with an extremely grateful THANK YOU to the club as well as to all the businesses that contributed, from the students at Grace College building the trailer, to the gifts and vouchers that came with it.

My husband and I are over the moon with being the lucky winners, having the chance to win this prize was massive for us, we still pinch ourselves as these things don’t normally happen for us, so we are taking it that this is the start of a better year.”

The club would like to wish Robyn and Michael all the best for their new business venture as well as the other winners and would also like to thank everyone that supported us by buying tickets.

We also have 2 local groups assisting us in selling tickets each year and they receive a percentage of the monies raised to go towards their projects.

They are the Knights of the Southern Cross and  Humanitarian Projects international Inc.
