Mother’s Day – Competition, In Partnership with Red Letter Days

22 February 2021

We have partnered with Red Letter Days to recognise all the mums, grans, aunties and carers who have gone above and beyond this year. Together we are calling on the nation to help us claim back 100,000 hours of ‘Mumpaid Labour’ for our hard-working mums before Mother’s Day. We are also launching a competition to celebrate, find out how you can get involved.

From the pressures of lockdowns and financial anxieties, to the unpaid responsibilities of housework and home-schooling, we know parents have had a lot to contend with. Red Letter Days are calling on the nation to help us claim back 100,000 hours of ‘Mumpaid Labour’ for our hard-working mums before Mother’s Day on Sunday 14th March.

We’re also launching a competition for you to win your very own experience day to enjoy with your family or gift to a special person this Mother’s Day. To get involved all you need to do is head to our Facebook page and let us know how your mum, or someone who has been like a mum to you, has been there to support you?

We’ve teamed up with Red Letter Days to give one lucky person access for two adults and two children to a fantastic day out, from a huge choice of activities and experiences. Get up close and personal with some birds of prey, chug along in an old steam train, enjoy an exhilarating paintball experience or choose from many other fun days out!

How has the special person in your life made a difference? Let us know in the comments here and be in for a chance to win. The competition closes at midnight on Mothers Day (14th March 2021) with a winner chosen at random on 15th March.
