John’s premonition soon became a reality

This week the Made in Bury team was delighted to surprise John Allen with the £2,000 cheque. John works at Bury Council who are no strangers to the draw having had several previous winners.

We recruited the help of Lesley who kindly helped us surprise John. We went upstairs to the busy office John was working in and as we surprised him with the cheque, he said: “I had a premonition I was going to win”. John only signed up to the draw before Christmas so it goes to show how great the odds are.

John has worked at the Council for 6 years as a provider relationship officer and deals with all the business contracts within adult social care. John is a Manchester City fan and may use some of the money towards a football trip.

Here at Made in Bury, we work in close partnership with Bury Council on events such as the Made in Bury Business Awards.  With over 8,000 employees, many who are signed up to the business draw, they are the borough’s largest employer.

Every Wednesday someone wins £2,000 in the Made in Bury Business Draw and with just 2,400 tickets available, the odds are great. Tickets are just £2 each and proceeds go towards helping new start-up businesses through the Made in Bury Business Academy and support interest-free loans.
