It's always good to hear a bit of good news, and for one Whiritoa couple opening an email while they were on a cruise in Singapore was the best news ever.
The couple had gone ashore and decided to check their emails. There was one from the Heart Foundation and while they hoped it would be good news they never imagined they'd win a house.
Jim and Christine Green have supported the Heart Foundation by buying lottery tickets religiously for the past 15 years and it has paid off.
They're getting ready to move into their brand new home, just up the road from where they now live in Whiritoa after winning a 'coastal escape' home at Whangamata valued at over $500,000.
The house was first prize in Heart Foundation Lottery number 74 and is fully furnished and landscaped. All the couple have to do is pick up the keys.
Christine said that even though the house is fully furnished they will take a few things with them, like her grandmother's Queen Anne bedroom suite.
Jim said the Whiritoa community has been buzzing with the news and it's been great that everybody has been so delighted by their good luck.
