A search has been launched to find a local supermum with a heart of gold – with the winner set to receive a fantastic Mother’s Day treat package worth over £200.

Stretford Mall has launched a search to find a deserving Mum of the Year, in a competition being run to celebrate Mother’s Day, which this year falls on Sunday March 11.

The winner will receive a prize worth more than £200, including an £90 make-over at Glam Academy, a £75 shopping voucher, a 50ml bottle of Lacoste Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle worth £46 courtesy of The Fragrance Shop, plus coffee and cake for two at Costa Coffee, all at Stretford Mall.

The £75 shopping voucher can be spent at any of Stretford Mall’s retailers, which include Boots, Peacocks, Pep & Co, Bon Marche, Clarks, Aldi, O2, Holland and Barrett, Hollywood Nails, Pure Gym, and WH Smith.

Mother’s Day is a special time for make-over specialists Glam Academy, as the business is run by mum and daughter Hamieda and Farah Ariya.

The make-over prize worth £90, includes eye brow threading, full make-up, a blow dry, and a full set of acrylic nail extensions with gel polish, at the store, which opened at Stretford Mall this autumn.

Farah said: “Everyone’s mum is special. It’s so important that we recognise what they do for us and show our appreciation.

“I think this is a lovely way to celebrate the day. We can’t wait to meet the winner to give her a lovely pamper experience.”
