During last year’s Celebration of Learning week, we asked GMB members to complete a ReachOut Survey and upon completion, we advised your details would be placed into a prize draw. At the recent GMB ULR forum, the draw was made to determine the winners of the 6 prizes that were on offer.  The main prize up for grabs was a highly sought after Amazon Kindle e-book reader which, with its winning combination of features including a catalogue of 800,000 books and a ‘read me feature’ allowing books to be read out loud to you, sold out within 5 days of its release.  The runner up prizes were book vouchers to the value of £10.00 and there were 5 of these to be won. 

The draw was made and we can now confirm the winner of the fantastic kindle was Martyna Broadacka from the Yodel Group. We hope you enjoy your prize Martyna!

 The runner up prizes were awarded to:

Derek Smith- Warrington Council

Stephen Hodkinson- Yodel Group

Jill Milner- Oldham Council

Sarah Griffiths- St. Helens Council

Anthony Mitchell- Yodel Group


Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone who completed a survey.
