Firstly, we would like to say THANK YOU to those who entered our fantastic competition!
The winner is Shirley Macauley.
Congratulations Shirley, the National Trust Annual Membership is all yours to enjoy. We’ll be in contact very soon with more details.
It was a difficult decision to make, as all entries were heartfelt and we could sense the love from each of them. With this in mind, we will be sending something to all of you and we will be in contact with you directly over the next few days. Well done and thank you for sharing your amazing Mummy’s with us.
Here is Shirley’s entry…
” My mum, had a stroke 22 years ago but this has never stopped her doing things. She ran a ‘Stroke Club’ and a ‘ rendezvous’ club for 12 years, she organised day trips, holidays, quizzes, speakers, coffee mornings and Bingo sessions. She wrote to companies asking for charitable donations and she met Prince Andrew in her capacity as an organiser. She made greeting cards to sell, had cookery books printed, made Christmas hampers, flowers arrangements to sell for charity and all this with one arm and leg. She’s my inspiration and my rock. I loved her as a child and even more now that I see her struggling but fighting her disability everyday. Happy Mother’s Day mum, love you xx
What an amazing lady!
