MARY BURNS AWARDS
DAY 13

THE `BUILDING FOR GOD' AWARD

Jesus! Joseph! And MARY! Who could possibly have taken money off a church, stuck a sign up saying `Building For God', and then not paid people properly for the work they'd done building that church?

Yes, this MARY is given to someone who has a very strange relationship with his maker…

Ladies and Gentlemen. The `BUILDING FOR GOD' AWARD…goes to…

CHEK WHYTE

The Secret Millionaire himself had a hell-ish year with debts of over £30million and a personal bankruptcy judgement. But save your tears for those angry, financially devastated sub-contractors who worked on the new church on Langworthy Road.

Chek Whyte rode into Salford in 2007 as the Channel 4 `Secret Millionaire', promising good deeds. He subsequently `bought' two towerblocks and the Brass Handles pub, although Salford Star investigations showed that he personally owned none of them. 

Meanwhile, Chek decided to rescue the ailing £6million Emmanuel Church project in Langworthy, and was paid by the Church for building work on the scheme, as well as some public money from the £1,550,000 pot for the 22 affordable flats within the development.

But the Church money and public money was never used to pay in full the sub contractors he employed on the development, and the firms found themselves on a long list of creditors together with others owed in total over £30million. Also on that list were sub-contractors employed on the Bronte Court towerblock in Pendleton.

Chek was declared bankrupt, although last we heard he was applying to court to get the bankruptcy annulled.  

Ladies and Gentlemen please pray for the soul of the MARY BURNS `BUILDING FOR GOD' AWARD winner…

CHEK WH-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-TE
