All ‘Rhodes’ lead to £2000!

Today’s Winner of the Made in Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw is Charlotte Banks from Financial Options with ticket number 21919.

Upon finding that Charlotte wasn’t working in the office today as she was actually on her way to Rhodes, we decided to give her a phone call to surprise her with the news, in the hope that we’d catch her before she boarded her flight!

When Phil gave Charlotte the call, her first words were “I haven’t won, stop it!”. Well, yes Charlotte, yes you have! Today was Charlotte’s first day off from work this year and when we made the phone call she had literally just landed in Rhodes for her 2 week Holiday with fiancé Tom. It’s actually a holiday for Tom’s 40th Birthday, and it has been cancelled 3 times prior to this. So now they’ve finally made it, and they have an extra £2000 to spend on excursions during their time in Greece. Tom will even be getting an extra special birthday present now!

Charlotte has been the Head of People and Development at Financial Options for 8 years and is a big supporter of the Weekly £2000 Draw, so much so she’s even been rounding up her new staff that she’s been training and getting them to sign up. Charlotte oversees operational functions such as recruitment, staff training, workflow management and reviews. She ensures processes are followed correctly and keeps everything running smoothly amongst the staff. 

Financial options are a founding member of Quilter Financial Plannings national network – voted the UK’s #1 financial advice network 2019.
