Winner Stories

Here’s a selection of great stories from a few of our lucky winners!


“I couldn’t believe it when the lady called from PCYC to tell me I had won the first prize in Lottery 65, I have never won anything in my life! I certainly have never owned a car so shiny and new”  Ron is a man in his 80s, who still works on his small farm in country NSW and drives every day to visit his beloved wife who is now in a nursing home with dementia.

“My old truck is over 20 years old, so I’ll be able to pass her on to my daughter and her husband.  I told my wife of my win and she just can’t believe me, so I have to take a picture of myself with the truck to her” Ron couldn’t believe the car had video screens in the back and everything was electric. “I like to help a little when I can, I never expected to win anything, I only do it just to help the kids out”

Ron we thank you for your support and you are such a deserving winner!


“I would like to start by thanking the PCYC for this fantastic prize. My wife and I have been supporting the PCYC for a while now. We never expected this to happen to us and at a more appropriate time.

We have our first baby due soon and winning this prize has certainly lifted a great weight off our shoulders needing to buy a safe new car. We will most definitely continue our support for the PCYC. I would recommend joining the PCYC raffle to anyone. This has changed our lives and we will continue to help you guys change the lives of Australian youth.”

Thank you, Cain.


“I picked up the car last Saturday and my original excitement of finding out I had won 3rd prize in the lottery returned. The excitement began after I was checking my numbers in the email notification of the draw back in August. I had to get my husband to check as I wasn’t sure I had read the email correctly. The phone call the next day confirmed everything!

My friends and family couldn’t believe that people actually do win prizes. I buy tickets from time to time, but never really think about the prizes as I’m happy to just help support the great work that PCYC do with helping young people. I never expected to win anything and a major prize is even more exciting. I’m very grateful that this has happened to me.”

Thank you so much PCYC


“Thank you to all at the PCYC. This is an absolute buzz winning something like this from your raffles! Thanks to the young man who called that day and I bought 50 tickets. God I don’t even win meat raffles so this is huge. My wife said I was mad to buy that many tickets. Well it’s a great mad I think.”

Thanks again to you all – Neil


“Words can’t really explain what it feels like to be told over the phone that you have won 3rd prize in the PCYC national lottery. I had just returned from holidays to find lots of messages on my answering machine and thought it must have been important for them to keep ringing me. I am so very glad they were persistent until they got hold of me. What a surprise to hear that I was the proud owner of a brand new Toyota Yaris.

Keep up the good work PCYC. After many years of being involved in Blue Light Discos I support the initiatives you undertake to help youth in various projects. I am indeed one very lucky lottery winner! Thank you again for making dreams come true.”

Thank you so much, Trish.
