On Thursday 7th May the draw for Captain Manchester’s Magical Tombola, sponsored by Zen Office, took place. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone that entered.
An amazing 395 tickets were sold raising a fantastic £1,975 for Forever Manchester to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.
With Forever Manchester staff currently working from home across Greater Manchester, the draw was made by our very own Liz Page using a random name generator.
The winners this month were:
1st Prize: £500
2nd Prize: £250
3rd Prize: £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
