The prize was recently taken out by Sydney firefighter of 25 years, John Corby and his wife Cathie who took out a new CUA home loan through Mortgage Choice (Sutherland and Cronulla).

“I was absolutely thrilled and didn’t believe it at the beginning,” Mr Corby said of the call he received telling him that he’d won.


“I do vaguely remember hearing about the promotion when we took out the loan, but you don’t think much of it as we never thought we could actually win,” he commented.

Mr Corby and his wife have lived in their house at Como for 23 years and have been empty-nesters since their two children moved out a few years ago.

According to Mr Corby, the money has come at an opportune time for the couple as they plan to fully renovate their house including a new bathroom, driveway, painting and landscaping.

“The timing of this was great for us as we were doing some renovations at home and were falling short. This will be fantastic to finish off what we’ve started,” Mr Corby said.

CUA Randwick branch manager Lionel Singh who delivered the news to Mr Corby said: “It was a real privilege to be the one to deliver this exciting news to John.”

“It sounds like this money will make a real difference and help John and Cathie to finish their renovation and give their house the makeover they’ve been dreaming about for quite a while,” Mr Singh said.
