An Angle Vale couple’s morning tea scones came with more than just a dash of extra cream today, but the revelation of their support for National Seniors Australia had scored them a $250,000 Play For Purpose prize.

The First Prize Pack from Play For Purpose Raffle 22, drawn Friday 15 March 2024, features $250,000 in cashable gold bullion.

The South Australian seniors purchased their winning ticket in support of National Seniors Australia, revealing the charity was one close to their hearts.

“Is this for real?! Oh my god, I can’t believe it. We never win anything!” the winning husband cheered when we revealed their newfound fortune.

“We’re at the shops having scones for St Patrick's Day. What a wonderful surprise!

“I saw an ad for Play For Purpose online. I checked that it was a genuine raffle and I saw I could purchase a ticket in support of National Seniors Australia. I thought ‘Well, I’ll have a go at that!’.

“We chose to support National Seniors Australia because we’re both seniors ourselves. We’re finding it a bit tough now, so we wanted to support other seniors in a similar boat.

“Well, lucky me! This is only our second or third time playing too!

“I don’t believe it. I really don’t believe it.

“It’s certainly going to make our lives a lot easier. We’ll help our children out too.

“We’ll get them together after this and tell them the great news.

“Thank you so much. We can’t wait to celebrate and tell our friends.”

National Seniors Australia CEO, Chris Grice was over the moon for their winning supporters.

“It’s fantastic to see another supporter of National Seniors Australia win the major prize in the Play For Purpose raffle,” he said.

“Every time someone buys a ticket and supports the National Seniors Australia cause, it helps us to continue our important work advocating and supporting seniors on issues like Aged Care, Pension Poverty and Cost of Living.”
