Vivienne’s in a spin

VIVIENNE Lindsay's home of more than 30 years will soon feel like new.

Her Nambour residence is in line for an overhaul, Ms Lindsay having won the $20,000 home makeover package at the Maroochydore Homemaker Centre yesterday.

One of Ms Lindsay's entry forms cut out of the Sunshine Coast Daily was the first to be pulled out in the major prize draw to close the Spin to Win promotion.

She screamed loudly and ran to the stage as her name was read out in front of a crowd of hundreds, all hoping they would be the lucky ones.

Ms Lindsay has been collecting her entry forms from the Daily every day since the promotion began on November 10.

"I had a feeling I'd win. I just had a good feeling about it," said Ms Lindsay, who also enjoyed some early luck in the competition.

In her first go at Spin to Win the week prior, she won a Maya umbrella and granite base worth $178.

"It was the first time I'd managed to come along (to the Homemaker Centre)," she said.

"I just knew I had to come back for the major prize. I had a good feeling about it."

Ms Lindsay said she was yet to decide on the form of the makeover but hoped she could do something with the outdoor area.

The $20,000 home makeover package comprises a two-day customised design journey led by leading interior designer Revy Bryce-Browning, the managing director of Design Vision.

The first day will include shopping for new home products at the Maroochydore Homemaker Centre and on the second day Revy will assist Ms Lindsay in styling her home.

Revy has designed award-winning projects including the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre and is currently designing local new retail precinct Emporio at Maroochydore.
