Discover Christmas in the Moreton Bay Region


Free fuel bonanza for mum

Posted: 12pm 01 Nov 2021

The recipient of a $1000 fuel giveaway is still pinching herself after finding out about her win.

Melanie Furnee never dreamt she’d take out the prize, donated by Village Motors North Lakes to celebrate the arrival of the all-new Renault Arkana.

The Arkana merges the best of SUV lifestyle with coupé attitude.

It’s the perfect vehicle to explore the Moreton Bay Region this spring.

“I was so excited,” the mum of two says.

“You’ve made my year, it’s fantastic.”

Melanie says she is considering a mini-break with her family or even jazzing up her garden with the money she would save on petrol as a result of her windfall.

“We spend so much on petrol driving the kids everywhere – to school, to sports after school,” she says.
