Mother’s Day is Sunday 8 May, and we’re on a mission to find the North Shore’s most inspiring Mum for 2016!
Do you know an amazing North Shore Mum? We want hear about a real standout mum who is inspirational to you, your children or others. It could be a friend, your mum, a colleague, a sibling or even a mother-in-law.
There are so many fabulous mums on the North Shore. It could be someone who raises her kids but finds time to help out with other families or charities; it could be a mum juggling five children; it could be a mum who has gone through very difficult times with her health, her family or her children and is triumphing over the odds; it could be a mum who works tirelessly to help sick children; it could be a mum who is simply doing a great job at being a mum – we think all of these mums deserve to get noticed!
We’ve got over $2000 worth of prizes to be won, and are calling upon YOU to nominate someone who you think deserves to win the crown. Both the nominators and the inspirational mums will win some fabulous prizes.
