Lucky Roy gives car away

HERVEY Bay's Roy Robb was so excited about winning the Boat Club's flood car last Saturday he decided to celebrate with a second small glass of whiskey.

Unfortunately for the 88-year-old it put him in a spin and yesterday as he was picking up the car he was sporting a small few facial abrasions.

That didn't stop him from enjoying his moment in the sun at the Boat Club as he was collecting the keys to his new Mitsubishi Lancer.

He won't be hanging on to the keys for long because Mr Robb has decided to give the car to his daughter, Janine Heathwood, who also lives in Hervey Bay.

Janine wasn't at the club with him because she is currently visiting her daughter in Malaysia.

His son, Stephen, came along for the presentation and Mr Robb told him as he was preparing to drive the car away that the next car he won would be his.

His son just rolled his eyes.

The Boat Club raised almost $23,500 from its flood car appeal. That money will be handed to Rotary clubs in the worst flood hit areas of the state.

Boat Club president George Duck said that way all those who donated would know their money would get directly to those who most deserved help.
