10 Superwomen and a Little Lady

posted in: Featured, Heroes | 0

Handmade-in-Ely-logo-whiteMum’s from our region were crowned Superwomen at a ceremony following the Random Acts of Kindness competition created by The Handmade in Ely group of local crafters and Spotted in Ely.

Held at Bar 62 on Saturday 14th March, the ladies and their families attended the presentation and received their prizes.

Each of the women had amazing stories and very emotional to hear but each had one thing in common; their audacity to life itself. No matter what life has thrown at them, they have excelled and always put others and their family before themselves.

Our winners:

  • Barbara Gould, nominated by daughter Rebecca and wins a Case of Cream Tea from Lauren at Ditsy Daisy.
  • Jeanette Biggadike was nominated by daughter Jemma and wins the Padded Notice Board by Kirsty at Serendipities.

We also presented an extra Special Prize to the lovely Poppy. Poppy was the young lady who found a bunny by the canon in the Cathedral grounds and posted it on Spotted in Ely page. The photo was seen by more than 36,000 people and shared so many times we lost track. She took the lost bunny home and had a tea-party with her own teddy’s and kept the bunny safe until the owner came to collect him.

Poppy who is just 3 showed a remarkable act of kindness and thanks to our friends at the City Cycle Centre Toy Department, was given a rucksack, doll and her very own bunny.
