They inspired words of love and messages about just how great they are, so it was only fitting that they were honoured at a special ceremony. These are the mums who our winners in our children’s Mothers Day competition wrote about so lovingly in cards printed for them by Y, in association with Puck.
Our top three winners along with their mums were presented with their cash prizes at an event in Markaz Al Bahja Mall. They also received goodie bags from Puck. Felicity Glover, Y’s Managing Editor, was there to congratulate the young winners and their mums.
Nine-year-old Amita Sen, who told us how her mum cooked her nice food and was represented by her sister as she was travelling, won the first prize of RO200 cash.
Second was Sara al Shamsi, collecting RO100 cash, while Fionulla Precious G. Payuyo, 14, cleverly used hashtags to describe how wonderful her mum was and won RO50 in the process.
All three winning entries were also framed and given back to the participants to present to their mums as a keepsake.
