It’s all about managing the money for this weeks winner!

This week we were at the Grundy Centre in Bury, which is where Persona Support are located. With the help of some of the staff, we surprised John O’Connor the Finance Manager with his £2000 cheque.

With his colleagues gathered in reception, Finance Director, Bernard Noblett, who was in on the surprise, brought John into the main foyer under the pretence of moving some boxes. Instead of boxes, he was presented with his cheque to a round of rapturous applause and congratulations from everyone watching. 

John has been in his role as Finance Manager for 4 years and told us that he plans on spending the money on his children and possibly a weekend away. 

Persona Support offer Social Care to help improve quality of life with a range of services including day support, residential breaks or floating support in your own home. 

They provide support for:

  1. young people with additional needs
  2. people with learning disabilities
  3. people with physical disabilities
  4. older people 
  5. people living with dementia
  6. people with autism


Congratulations again to John and we hope you enjoy your weekend away!
