Every mum is special, and we want to give you the opportunity to tell the world not only how special your mum is but also how wonderful the women in your life are.

Let’s not pretend, the pandemic has been a tough for everyone, and the love of our mums, stepmums, grandmothers, aunties, sisters and all those other special (and strong) ladies has helped so many of us through these difficult times. There are also those who have been unable to be with their mums for a year because of shielding or lockdown restrictions. And, let’s not forget the many mums who have added the role of home teacher to their many skills.

So, this year, we are giving you THREE ways you can show your love for your mum ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday, March 14.

*Send your mum a public message of love and thanks that we will print in the newspaper*

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Mother's Day Love

*Send a video message (no longer than 20 seconds) to be published on our website

*Send us a selfie of you and your mum, also to be published on our website.

Tell us your message in 50 words or less, who it is for and who it is from.

Please ensure you use full names, not nicknames.

We will also need your contact details. We will not be able to publish any message sent without this information.Once we have the written messages, we will then publish them in the last edition before Mother’s Day.

The deadline for Mother’s Day messages is 11pm on Thursday March 4.

If you are sending a video or selfie, please include your mum’s name and your name and send them to: [email protected]

Please remember, it doesn’t matter how old you or your mum are - this is for everyone.

Don’t miss your chance to say a public “thank you”, “I love you” or “I miss you” to that special mum and wonderful woman in your life.
