TONNER CASH

THE raffle to win a WB one-tonner built by inmates at Junee Correctional Centre has been run and won, with a fantastic outcome.

A massive $78,010 was raised for the Junee branch of Can Assist, which will directly benefit the 70-odd rural cancer patients they have on their books. The lucky winner was a Wagga lad by the name of Brock Phillips a diehard Holden man and a third-year apprentice at the local Holden dealership. Wed like to offer a big congratulations to Brock and everyone involved in the project. To watch a video on the tonner, head to streetmachine.com.au.
