On Wednesday 7th November, we surprised the 27th winner of the Made in Bury Business Draw. This week’s lucky winner was Hilary, a secretary at Woodcocks Haworth & Nuttall Solicitors, where she has worked for an unbelievable 36 years!
We crammed into the reception with Hilary’s team who all came down from their desks to help us surprise her. Hilary certainly realised something was happening when she saw the crowd of people waiting for her through the glass door. It wasn’t until she came into the reception that she realised she was the lucky winner of £2,000!
Hilary’s partner had been told by the lovely reception staff at Woodcock’s to get down to the office, so he could see the moment we surprised his wife with the cheque. We’re sure he was just as thrilled as she was!
Speaking to Hilary about what she would spend the money on, she revealed that it would probably go towards Christmas presents… for herself! That, or possibly a holiday next year, which we think her family might be happier about.
The Business Draw costs just £2 a week to enter, and we surprise a new winner EVERY WEDNESDAY! All money after costs goes towards our Business Academy which mentors start-up businesses and will eventually help to fund interest-free loans for local businesses. So not only will you be helping the Bury business community, but you could also walk away £2,000 richer!
We have pledged that if we sell 2,000 Business Draw tickets by 14th November, in time for the December draw, we will boost the winnings on 19th December to a whopping £5,000! This is a great chance to help a local cause and be in with the chance of winning some extra spending money for the holidays!
Congratulations to Hilary on your win! You can watch the moment we surprised her here.
