opportunities that this new career can bring,''

Charitable gesture pays
off for mum of three
By LAUREN HAYES
A Southland woman has a shiny new
set of wheels thanks to a competition
helping out children with cancer.
Karen Brock won the white Peugeot
208 Allure during the Cure Kids Red
Nose Day comedy telethon, filmed
live on August 23.
Almost two weeks after her name
was read out on national television,
Mrs Brock climbed behind the wheel
of her new car and took it for a test
Her family was ecstatic, she said.
''I've got three boys -- they're very
excited. They wanted picked up from
school and kindy.''
Mrs Brock saw the competition
advertised on Facebook and decided
to enter, stopping to donate some
money to Cure Kids while she was
on the site.
''This is the first thing I've ever won.
It was unbelievable.
''It's quite zippy, though, so I'll have
to watch for the odd speeding ticket,''
The family would have to wait until
calving season quietened down
before taking any long jaunts in the
The Red Nose Day event helped
raised more than $1.4 million for
Cure Kids, which funds research
into child cancer treatment.
