The search for Ireland’s No.1 Mum has begun
Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year Awards now open
The Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year Awards 2014 are now open.
Now in their 11th year the Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year Awards gives children, spouses or family members the opportunity to recognise and reward the fantastic work mums do for their families.
Mums are the backbone of families in Ireland. They often pursue a career while playing a central role in raising a family, managing the household, organising kids for school and after school activities. They may also help look after extended family, volunteer in their community or simply offer support to those in need, while never indulging in ‘me time’ for themselves.
Open to mums from all over Ireland, 15 special mums will be chosen to attend the finals at a gala luncheon in Dublin. Three mums will be selected from each province with an additional three selected from Dublin.
The 2014 Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year will win a fantastic €5000 worth of Lidl vouchers plus over €2,000 worth of pampering and luxury products. Each of the finalists will receive a luxury goodie bag worth €250.
Nominating your supermum couldn’t be easier, simply fill out the nomination form in Woman’s Way and tell us why your mum should be crowned the Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year. The closing date for entries is May 2nd.
“The Woman’s Way Mum of the Year Awards has been running for the past 11 years with entries increasing year on year. We continue to be humbled and impressed by the courage, strength and determination being demonstrated by the mums of Ireland. The Mum of the Year Awards are dedicated to giving those unsung heroes their chance to shine and we urge families, community groups, neighbours and friends to get involved. We are thrilled to have Lidl returning as sponsor, they understand families are still feeling the pinch which is reflected in their continued effort to offer Irish families great value and excellent quality” commented Aine Toner, editor of Woman’s Way.
Jasmine O’Brien, Lidl Ireland, said: “At Lidl, we are delighted to be sponsoring the Woman’s Way Mum of the Year Awards for the second year in a row. This is the perfect opportunity to recognise and celebrate the many mums throughout Ireland who are inspirational in their everyday lives. Last year we heard some incredibly humbling and heart-warming stories, and we very much look forward to celebrating more amazing mums this year. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, what better way to show your mum just how special she is than by nominating her for the Woman’s Way & Lidl Mum of the Year Awards!”
