A second win in 43 years

This week’s winner of the Made in Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw is Barbara Aherne. Barbara accompanied her daughter Bridget to the Made in Bury Business Awards back in 2018. Bridget was a finalist for Businesswoman of the year. Barbara purchased a draw ticket at the Awards.

Barbara was a tough one to track down today. We first attempted to call Barbara directly but there was no answer. We managed to get hold of her daughter Bridget who was delighted to hear her Mum had won the £2,000. Bridget provided us with Barbara’s place of work so we were able to deliver the good news.

When we spoke with Barbara she was thrilled to have won the £2,000. The last time Barbara won anything was 43 years ago, back in 1977 in the football pools, scooping up £2641.10.

Barbara has been back in work for 2 weeks and during lockdown, she has been doing renovations mainly to the outside of her house. The £2,000 will go towards doing the inside of her house. I’m sure the end result will look fantastic.
