Tramper answers call just in time for big win


Big Spender winner Jenny Williams could have missed out on her chance at winning a $1000 Freedom Furniture voucher if the call had come any later.
Ms Williams was on a school camp with her daughter, tramping in the Redwoods, when contacted by MoreFM.
"Luckily I had my phone in my pocket and not my backpack and that we had reception, because they only ring once, and if you don't pick up, they move on to the next person," Ms Williams said.
"The next call I got from Hastings City Marketing went straight to answerphone, so we must nearly have been out of reception."
Ms Williams said the money would go toward lots of little things. "I think it will get spent on new towels and duvets and things so that we get a lot of instead of just one big item. I have already been into the shop. It's just nice to know I can buy things as I need them."
