Dad wins new car to go with his new home

IT'S been a big week for father-of-two Gerry Keenan.

Not only did he receive the keys to his new Forest Springs home, but on Tuesday he was handed the keys to a sparkling new Mazda 2.

Mr Keenan, 36, is the lucky winner of the car thanks to a promotion offered to purchasers within Gladstone's Forest Springs neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood is one of Gladstone's most popular residential communities, located only minutes from the CBD.

Mr Keenan said he was thrilled to win the vehicle and was looking forward to parking it in the garage of his new home which was built by Aston Milan Homes.

"It was a big surprise," he said.

"It's nice to win something every now and then because I don't win much. I don't even win on the scratch-its!

"The kids didn't believe me when I told them so it's a great surprise for everyone."

Walker Corporation's Queensland general manager Peter Saba said Mr Keenan was one of five Forest Springs land buyers who had the opportunity to win the Mazda 2, which was purchased from local dealership Andersons Auto City.
