January 7, 2019

Last week we announced the first winner of 2019. Congratulations to the 35th winner of the Business Draw, Connect Comms - who entered as a team!

Connect Comms is a family-run business based in Bury providing innovative telecommunication systems to businesses of all sizes, including mobile phone packages, competitive tariffs and device repairs.

We rang Brenda, Director of Finance, to reveal the good news and arrange our visit for the weekly surprise video, but it was just our luck that most of the team, including the directors, were not back in the office following the Christmas break. With hardly anyone to surprise, we decided to pop round with the cheque to get a photo of our winners, but unfortunately no video!

The team were delighted with the news that they had won £2,000 on their first day back after Christmas and were eager for the directors to return to find out how they would be spending it.

The Made in Bury Business Draw is a not for profit initiative that was set up to create funds for small businesses in the local area. The money raised from the draw goes towards the training and mentoring of start-up businesses through the Made in Bury Business Academy and will eventually allow us to offer interest free loans. Enter the Made in Bury Business Draw today and you could be starting 2019 with a bang!

Anyone that owns or works for a business in Bury can take part in the draw. We’ve also opened it up to friends and family. It costs just £2 a week to enter, and we give away a £2,000 cheque every Wednesday!

Congratulations once again to Connect Comms!
