Hot breakfast with a side of cold hard cash

The first winners of the Find the Five promotion have been found.

A family breakfast at Hoppy’s Café has served up $1000 for one lucky couple.

As part of the Find the Five game, local residents Pauline and Owen Burleigh collected all five Warrnambool icons, netting themselves a major prize.

Find the Five is part of the Warrnambool City Council’s city centre renewal business support package.

Shoppers who spend $10 or more at a participating CBD business are given a game card. They can then pop open the tabs to reveal either an instant win or a Warrnambool icon.

Icons for Round One are a maremma dog, a penguin, a stingray, a seal and a southern right whale.

Mr Burleigh said that he was delighted when he found out that he had the winning combination of icons.

“I was in disbelief. I thought maybe we’d go in the draw to win, but to win $1000 just like that was exciting," he said.

“I think (Find the Five) is a good way to encourage people to get down the street to find (the winning icons).”

Warrnambool City Council Manager Economic Development Shaun Miller said there were still winning cards for Round One to be found.

“It’s great that we’ve had our first winners come forward, but the good news for everyone else is that you can still find all five icons to win $1000 cash,” he said.

“If you’ve got a few icons, maybe get together with your mates and see what they have. You might have $1000 between you.

“There are also more than $130,000 worth of instant prizes and discounts to be found throughout the year.”
