A product developer at a food firm is celebrating after winning the Made In Bury Weekly £2,000 Draw.

Laura McMahon, of Cranswick Continental Foods, which is based in Pilsworth, has scooped the prize with ticket number 23141.

Laura, who has been with the company for more than four years, creates new products and recipes for launching to retailers.

Cranswick have five or more tickets, and as a result of their ticket numbers, they are official supporters of the draw, just like many more local businesses.

The business have had quite a few winners over the years with Laura;s win being an extra special surprise.

Laura has been a ticket holder since 2022 and joined the draw when a colleague won a couple of years ago.

She said she joined because she wanted to support local businesses but also for the chance to win.

Laura said that with the odds of winnings being so good, she felt it was a good initiative to support - plus she doesn't miss the £8.67 from her bank each month.

Phil Fellone from the draw team went into Cranswick's head office to surprise her in front of her colleagues.

Laura was completely shocked when Phil appeared at her desk with a giant £2000 cheque just for her.

What makes the win even more special is that it was Laura's birthday recently so some extra birthday celebrations will be happening.

Laura said she is due to go on holiday soon so her winnings will go towards spending money for her trip.
