The Pearl Award supporting Winston’s Wish Projects
Mother’s Day is a special time of the year. It’s the one day a year us mummies get the chance to justify putting our feet up and actually taking time out for ourselves, even though we still feel guilty about it. It’s also a time for remembering. Remembering those special ladies in our lives who are no longer with us. For no matter how old we are, our mums always hold a very special place in our hearts. Earlier this year, a mummy who had been coming to MamaBabyBliss Nottingham classes for all of her babies lives, sadly lost her battle to cancer. Her name was Pearl. She left behind her husband, her two children, her parents, her siblings and her friends. We want to honour Pearl in some way, and so this year we are launching The Pearl Award.
The Pearl Award will now form part of our annual activities and each year in March, we will remember Pearl and celebrate a special inspiring mummy. We can never replace the hole Pearl has left, but we hope this will go some way to create a legacy to Pearl and a legacy her husband, children, family and friends can remember her for.
The Pearl Award this year will be awarded to Pearl posthumously. We are sure you will agree when you read on why we have decided to do this and we feel very privileged and honoured to have been entrusted with this by Pearl’s family and friends.
Pearl, we know you are watching now, and we hope you are proud, knowing this is the legacy you have left, and the place you hold forever in so many hearts.
How to get involved
Donate to Winston's Wish
Charity to help bereaved children
The Pearl Award supports charity Winston's Wish. At Winston's Wish they help children and young people rebuild their lives after the death of their mum, dad, brother or sister. This support enables them to face the future with confidence and hope.
Giving in memory of your loved one is an amazing way to celebrate their life, keep memories alive and create a positive impact for the future. Pearl, you inspire us through the ones you loved, even though some us have not met you.
