Chance to say thanks to all our supermums

Have your say

Most of us will probably be saying it with flowers, a box of chocolates and perhaps a day out on Mother’s Day.

But, if you think you have a mum worth going the extra mile for, The Yorkshire Evening Post wants to hear from you!

We want to our readers to tell us why their mum is special - and we’ll be printing the best stories and messages from our readers in the paper.

If you would like to take part, you can either send an email clearly marked “Mother’s Day” to, let us know on Twitter by using @LeedsNews and #yepmothersday in your message, or even drop us a line at Newsdesk, The Yorkshire Evening Post, No1 Leeds, 26 Whitehall Road, Leeds LS12 1BE.

Alternatively, children who want to spend a little time learning how craft and hand-made card for their mum are welcome at HobbyCraft in Leeds, which will be leading a workshop on Saturday, March 29 - raising money for Together for Short Lives, with all proceeds going to Martin House Children’s Hospice at Boston Spa.

The crafting demonstrations will be run by the Hobbycraft team, who will show children how to develop their own designs. The craft table will be open on between 11am and 3pm.

Hobbycraft Leeds store manager, Dan Crawshaw, said: “There’s no better way to treat mums than with a handmade gift or card. We’ll be happy to help people create something unique for their mum - whether that’s a card, a cake or something extra special.”

More information - and more ideas for making things for mum - is available online at:

Meanwhile, craft sessions will also be held at Temple Newsam on both Saturday, March 29, and Mothering Sunday itself on Sunday, March 30, when youngsters will be able to make badges for deserving mums.

Although usual admission fees apply on the day, the sessions between 2pm and 3.30pm are free.
