A Cushendall mother is one of 36 inspirational mums from across Northern Ireland who will be recognised at a prestigious ceremony at Parliament Buildings, Stormont on September 30th.
The local mums have been selected as finalists in the SuperValu SuperMums competition, sponsored by Magnum, Kellogg’s and Robinsons.
The campaign, which is now in its second year, was launched on Mother’s Day and received over 300 heart-warming nominations.
SuperValu Ballymoney’s winner, Emma McAllister from Cushendall, was nominated by her cousin Kelly McHugh. Mum-of-three Emma juggled giving birth to her twins and organising her wedding, which took place only three months later.
Tragedy struck the day after the wedding when her new sister-in-law fell down the stairs in her home and passed away a few days later. Emma had to cope with her grief, remaining strong for her children and has been a rock to her mother and father-in-law. Emma will now go on to attend the celebration event at Stormont later this month.
The grand final will be hosted by TV personality Claire McCollum who will crown the overall SuperValu SuperMum 2015 and the winner will take home a family trip to Disneyland Paris, courtesy of Clubworld Travel, with each finalist receiving a pamper hamper.
Donna Morrison, Marketing Manager of SuperValu, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the volume and standard of entries for this, our second SuperValu SuperMums competition. I’d like to congratulate Emma on being chosen as a SuperValu Ballymoney’s SuperMum and wish her all the best for the grand final!” Donna added.
