He flew and he won! Wellcamp Airport gives away a car.
24 February 2017
When Sydney father-of-two Dave O’Connell flew into Wellcamp Airport - never in his wildest dreams had he imagined he’d drive home in a brand-new Audi A1!
Dave made a special trip to Toowoomba, late last year to see his 13-year-old niece star in Annie at the Empire Theatre.
When Dave’s dad dropped him off at the airport to fly back to Sydney, Dave killed time filling out an entry form for Fly and Win, a competition that gave every passenger departing Wellcamp Airport from July till early December 2017 the chance to drive home in a brand new car.
He hadn’t given the competition a second thought, so when the home phone rang in December 2016 he braced for a telemarketer only to be greeted with the news that he could finally retire his aging Ford Focus with wind down windows!
“I’ve never even won a meat tray let alone a car, it was one of the best calls I’ve ever answered and certainly a great late Christmas present,” laughed the 39-year-old.
“I’ve really been in desperate need of a new car, my well-loved renovator’s delight has been run into the ground. I even had to budget to keep it maintained!
“Annie’s luck must have spilled over the stage and into the audience at the theatre, it’s almost like Oliver Warbucks found me that night too.”
Congratulations Dave and family, the team at Wellcamp wishes you many happy hours of driving in your new luxury car!
