Judging by the entries we received for the Mahurangi Matters' Mother's Day competition, the Mahurangi region is home to many wonderful and much-loved mums.
We asked our readers to nominate a mum in their life who deserves to win a prize. Thankfully we did not have to judge the nominations on their merits, for this would have been an incredibly difficult task – instead, the winning entries were randomly selected.
Thank you to everyone who entered the Mother's Day competition. The winner of the $300 Vivo Hair Salon voucher was Warkworth great-grandmother Val Shepherd. The winner of the $149 Snap Fitness Warkworth voucher was Warkworth mum Lisa Partridge, and the winner of the Franklins Life Pharmacy hamper was mother of two Karina Weber.
Val was nominated by her daughter Cheryll Robertson, who said Val was a wonderful mother to her five children and their partners, and a wonderful Nana to her 17 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Cheryll says Val always has time for them all and makes each of them feel very special.
Lisa was nominated by her friend Amy Hawkins. Amy says Lisa deserves to win for not only being an amazing neighbour and friend, but also for being an amazing mum to her two boys.
Karina was nominated by her children, Louie and Lilah Weber. They thanked their mum for always giving so much of herself to ensure they had everything they needed and more. Mahurangi Matters would also like to sincerely thank the advertisers who kindly donated the prizes for the competition.
