This week there was no time to monkey around as we went to surprise our winner! We headed off towards Ainsworth Road to surprise one of our current Academy members, Caroline Garthwright. Since Caroline works from home, we had nobody to help us with our surprise this week so we took a chance that she would be in and set off with the big cheque!
Caroline runs The Monkey Box, a gift and accessories store for babies and children. Offering a great range of dribble bibs, teething accessories, back packs, reward jars and lots more! It's safe to say that we definitely took her by surprise as she answered the front door whilst on the phone and then hid from us as she didn't know quite what to say!
As a current member of the Made In Bury Business Academy, Caroline knows first hand just how much the Business Draw helps start up businesses in the borough. She's currently part way thorugh the specially designed 12 month course which delivers a range of modules from accounting and marketing to pricing and branding - all designed to help Bury based businesses of the future succeed.
Caroline plans to spend her winnings on a bit of a pamper as she's a busy mum and almost never treats herself and the rest will go towards a little family break.
For only £2 per week, you could do your bit to help start up businesses in Bury and ensure that our borough goes from strength to strength. To take part call 0161 447 8814 or visit www.madeinbury.co.uk
