A Cramlington mother who fought illness whilst caring for her elderly grandmother and young daughter has been named the ‘Most Magnificent Mam’ in a Mother’s Day competition hosted by Manor Walks.
Hayley Wood, 42, was awarded the prestigious title by Manor Walks Shopping & Leisure after her mum Kathleen and her three-year-old daughter Jasmine nominated her.
In her nomination, Kathleen stated Hayley deserved a special prize after enduring a year troubled with illness, holding down a full-time job whilst also caring for her 94-year-old grandmother and her three-year-old daughter.
Hayley said: “I had no idea my mum was going to nominate me on behalf of Jasmine, I had actually wanted to nominate her but just never got round to it, so it was a complete shock to receive the phone call to say I’d won.
“I was over the moon and humbled to be given the title of Manor Walks’ Most Magnificent Mam. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the prizes, especially the meal at Prezzo, which I took my mum and Jasmine along to, we were made to feel extra special by everyone.”
Amongst her prizes, Hayley received a sterling silver heart locket with personalised engraving from The Jewellers Guild, a No7 pamper pack from Boots, a manicure from Star Nails, an Elemis facial and Aroma hot stone massage from Saks, a family ticket to the Vue Cinema and a £20 Dunelm gift card.
Manor Walks’ general manager Bruno Coppola said: “Mams are at the heart of family life so we’re thrilled to award Hayley the title of Most Magnificent Mam along with a selection of lovely treats from a range of our stores and leisure venues.
“Our Mother’s Day competition was yet another way in which we were able to give something back to our loyal customers.”
