SPAR Auckley Retailer Celebrates Local Mums with Very Special Competition
Retailer Amarjit Bhdaal from SPAR Auckley held its first ever Mother of the Year competition to celebrate fantastic local mums - as voted for by their children.
The competition was run as a combined effort between SPAR and Auckley's local junior schools.
Children from Key Stage One year had to draw a picture of why their mum deserved the award, while Key Stage Two kids wrote a short essay on their super mums.
"We had a total of 85 entries, which we were delighted about," said Amarjit. "It went really well and will definitely be an annual event from now on."
"We invited all three finalists into our shop and announced the winner in front of a packed store.""We made it a real party atmosphere, with samples of food as well as free tea, coffee and hot chocolate for everyone," he said.
