Peter took delivery last week of a Husqvarna ride-on mower, line trimmer and chainsaw, Hans box trailer, Beefeater barbecue, and $550 Waratah Onesteel voucher from the U Beaut Deal competition.

Entrants were required to purchase select products from Norco Rural stores to be in the running to win the prizes.

Peter purchased two bags of Groommaster horse feed valued around $35 and took home a trailer load of prizes valued at $6000.

Dungog store manager Craig Matheson said it was great to see the prize come to Dungog.

“It was good to get one up on our Queensland stores,” he said.

“We can’t seem to win a State of Origin game, but this was a great surprise.

“It isn’t the first time success has come to Dungog with Mark Darr winning a quad bike a few years ago.”

Peter was thrilled when he received the phone call to tell of his win.

“For someone who normally can’t win a chook raffle, I’m very happy,” he said.

“I was in here a few weeks ago to get a price on a ride-on mower as I really needed one.

“Lucky I didn’t rush in and buy one.”
