Charys, last year’s Audi winner shares her story

It’s Northern Health Foundation Audi car raffle time again this year, and a great moment to catch up with Charys Winter, Clinical Nurse Consultant and the lucky winner of the 2017 raffle.

Charys bought the ticket last year, inspired by the efforts the Foundation is putting into supporting our patient’s families.

“I was pleased to see the initiative of the Foundation to build housing for patient families, as that must be an enormously stressful time for all, on top of the obvious medical concerns,” Charys said.

Charys was surprised to hear that she was the winner.

“The phone call woke me up on Saturday evening. I think I was in disbelief initially then the excitement kicked in,” she said.

The car came at the right moment for her and her family, as she decided to sell the car and help the family attend a wedding in Canada.

“Please support the Foundation and make a real difference towards achieving important goals – you might win as I did,” she added and told us that she’ll be getting a ticket this year too.

Tickets can be purchased from our volunteers at The Northern Hospital Epping foyer and online by clicking here.
