On Wednesday 17th October the 24th winner of the Made in Bury Business Draw was announced!
This week’s winner was Clark Burgan, the General Manager of UKMeds4U, an online platform for prescription medicines, which he has been looking after for 10 years.
We had a bit of a challenge finding Clark this afternoon! By the time we got to his office, he was no longer there. As quite the lone wolf, we struggled to find anyone who might know his whereabouts. We were almost about to admit defeat and reveal the win to Clark over the phone, when we managed to get hold of a colleague who told us he would be returning to his office later in the day. We went back, posing as deliverymen, and finally got to surprise him with his cheque!
Clark started participating in the Made in Bury Business Draw because he was passionate about helping businesses in the local area, so of course he wanted to invest his winnings back into his own business. We did suggest, however, that he bought himself a small treat first!
The Made in Bury Business Draw was set up to help fund our Business Academy and eventually enable us to create interest free loans to support start-up businesses.
We are eager to get more people involved in the Business Draw and have pledged that if we hit 2000 ticket sales by the end of November, we will boost the winnings on Wednesday 19th December to £5000 - just in time for Christmas!
The draw is open to all Bury businesses and organisations, their employees, and their friends and family. We are already looking forward to surprising next week’s winner – could it be YOU?
Congratulations once again to Clark! Watch the moment we surprised him here.
