This week we were excited to announce the winner of the Made in Bury Weekly Draw was Lauren Wood from Bury Business Lodge!
Bury Business Lodge provide fully-furnished office space to lease. Located in the centre of Bury and featuring free on-site parking, a gym and a cafe, it is a perfect spot for any business - so much so that our Made in Bury office is based here!
Lauren has worked as a receptionist for five years now, which involves answering the phones, dealing with clients, the post, general administration and welcoming visitors with her lovely smile and friendly personality!
We surprised Lauren this week with the help of the other Business Lodge girls. In previous weeks, we've had to walk past Lauren when she's sat at the reception and disappoint her as we track down the winner. But not today! As we were leaving, we stopped in reception and the usual routine occurred...then we revealed she was in fact this week's lucky winner!
Lauren was over the moon to have won, and when asked what she would be spending the money on, she said she would either treat her two children or book another holiday!
The Made in Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw is a not for profit initiative that raises money to pay for the training and mentoring of start-up businesses in Bury in the Made in Bury Business Academy. It costs just £2 a week to enter and there are only 2,400 tickets available, so make sure you enter soon if you want to become one of our Wednesday winners!
