How much is a mum worth?

Closing date for nominations 24 September 2010

Here’s how our annual Mum of the Year awards work


Write to us about a special mum – she could be your own mum, a friend, a neighbour or work colleague who has inspired you and shown a great capacity to help the lives of other people.


Our judges will then select the winners from your nominations. And, since we receive so many wonderful, inspiring stories, choosing the winning mums from the thousands of deserving entries gives our judges a very difficult task.


The lucky Mums of the Year will be wined, dined and pampered over a glamorous and memorable weekend in February 2011, including a star-studded awards ceremony in London.
