Made in Manchester – sneaker winner

Our campaign ‘Made in Manchester’ – the campaign where you could design your own sneaker and win a trip to Manchester – has come to an end. And Badly Drawn Boy has chosen some very good looking sneakers and some very happy winners! The Swedish winner, Cecilia, would like to share some of her experiences with us:

Two weeks ago I received a phone call from Hanne who told me that I had won a trip just by designing a pair of sneakers. I didn’t believe it was true, and it is still a bit unbelievable. Anyway, I won a trip to beautiful Manchester and lived in a super apartment!

This trip was wonderful even though it was short and intensive. We tried to do as much as possible. The first evening we went to a couple of bars and restaurants in the area around our hotel. The next day we walked around Manchester, to Arndale and Market street, Deansgate and to Chinatown. I would recommend every one of these streets, and especially the shopping centre ‘Next’ for everyone that loves the type of shoes that I do! That was all we had time for during the afternoon. Later that evening we went to the Opera House for the concert we won tickets to with Antony and the Johnsons. It was a really good concert! The last day was pretty much all about airports.

I have never met such wonderful and helpful people as I did in Manchester, this made my trip.

Thanks so much!
