Manor Walks, in Cramlington, set out to find their ‘Most Magnificent Mam’ as part of their Mothers’ Day celebrations.

The winning mum received a bundle of prizes including a nomination charm bracelet courtesy of The Jewellers Guild; a hand manicure and shellac toes package from Star Nails; two tickets for Vue Cinema Cramlington; a £50 voucher at Frankie & Benny’s; bottle of champagne and bouquet of flowers.

And winning mother Helen Brunskill, from Cramlington, visited the centre last week to collect her prizes.

She said: “I am absolutely over the moon winning the Mamma Walks prize and so pleased my daughter entered me into the competition.”

Manor Walks general manager Bruno Coppola said: “Out of all the great mams we thought Helen was the most deserving as she is suffering with Fibromyalgia and waiting for an operation to remove a tumor.

“Despite this she is still helping out looking after her grandchildren and still helping all her children financially.

“So we thought that someone who put themselves out for the family and extended family is exactly what we are all about.”
