Another Winning Wednesday, another lucky person walking away with an extra £2,000 in their bank! Last week’s winner of the Made in Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw was Carl Parker with ticket number 21749.

Carl has been in the draw since January 2020 and bought his ticket because his fiancée Jessica was a member of the Made in Bury Business Academy with her business Wing Cleaning.

Carl has seen how beneficial structured training and mentoring can be to a new start-up business with Jessica being part of the Academy and seen what the money from the draw goes towards.

Amy called Carl to surprise him with the news he was the winner. He definitely wasn’t unaware it was a Wednesday and he was receiving a call from Made in Bury. He said he had a small inclination she may be calling about the draw. When Amy said to Carl that yes, he was right about the reason she was calling as he was in fact the £2,000 winner he said: “you’re joking!”

Carl was made up with the fact he was a winner and said it felt brilliant. He is looking to get a new house with Jessica so the money will go towards that.

Carl is stock manager at International Timber based at Trafford Park and is coming up to his two-year anniversary of working there on Tuesday. Congratulations on the win Carl. The team at Made in Bury were so pleased to be able to make your Wednesday and that the money will be of great use to you with buying your new home.
