It was a first for Made in Bury as we were unable to get hold of the winner on Winning Wednesday.

The winner was Lyn Meadows, with ticket number 21423. She had to wait until the morning after before being told

This was thanks to the power of social media, in helping to locate Lyn.

Lyn explained to Leanne that two of her friends had sent her a screenshots from posts on social media asking if it was her, as she wasn’t on social media.

Initially Lyn wasn't sure but she checked and indeed it was her winning number.

Lyn didn’t answer her phone on Winning Wednesday as she was out and about all day, including a trip to the world famous Bury Market.

She had purchased her ticket in June 2019 while working at Woodhey High School, before retiring in 2020 after 22 years

Lyn told Leanne the winnings will go towards a holiday that’s booked for Scotland later in the year and some treats for family and friends.

Lyn has now given us her mobile number and an updated email address in case we ever need to get in touch again and she said that she will definitely answer if it's a Wednesday.
