On Friday 14th January the draw for Captain Manchester’s Magical Tombola Draw, sponsored by ZenOffice, took place. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone that entered this month.

An impressive 389 tickets were sold raising an amazing £1,945 for Forever Manchester to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.

We are also delighted to announce that since the Tombola began in February 2017 we have raised a magnificent £122,210

The draw was made by our very own Liz Page using a random name generator.

January 2021 Winners

3rd Prize of £100

We used the following website to generate the names of the winners – https://www.gigacalculator.com/randomizers/random-name-picker.php

They say: “Our random name picker first assigns incremental integer IDs to each name you enter, then uses a robust random number generator to produce a number in the range from minimum to maximum. The RNG algorithm is cryptographically safe, results in an unbiased pick, and can be used instead of a coin, dice, or another more primitive randomizing device (which might actually be biased due to imperfect construction).”

“The random selector has been tested statistically through simulations so you can be assured it is doing its job of giving each name an equal chance of being picked on any particular draw from the virtual urn / bag of names.”

The winners will be contacted directly regarding how to claim their prize.

If you are a winner and have not been contacted within 5 days, please email us at tombola@ForeverManchester.com
