Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Newspaper Survey Winner Walks Away With $1,000 In Fuel Vouchers

Megan Warrener started picking up the Mackay Life Newspaper when she first moved to Mackay, flicking straight to the real estate section to look for a house.

After settling into Mackay life, she’s become a regular reader of the newspaper and the inaugural winner of our reader survey, winning $1,000 in fuel vouchers.

Megan finds the paper on a newspaper stand outside a store on Nelson Street every Friday on the way to work, reading it front to back to keep up with news from both Mackay and the Whitsundays.

“It’s good to know what’s on and what’s been happening,” she said.

“There’s no components of the paper that I skip over, I read through all of it.”

“Everyone at work loves getting the newspaper, too, and having a read through and discussing what’s in there.”

Megan moved to Mackay from Moree looking for more opportunities for her 12 and 14-year-old boys.

“Mackay has everything that we need – good sporting opportunities, good schools, work – we’ve found that Mackay has everything we need,” she said.

Megan is the registrar of Brothers Bulldogs Junior Rugby League and weekends are often spent taking the boys to sport or the beach.

“I’m a very passionate footy mum,” she said.

Megan was one of 881 people to complete the Mackay and Whitsunday Life reader survey last year, winning her the $1,000 fuel voucher prize.

She said it’s come at the perfect time, with a drive to Yamba in northern New South Wales for a wedding coming up soon.

Congratulations, Megan, and thanks for reading!
