Sponsored by Shea Moisture

Welcome to the First Annual Fundraising Mother’s Day Awards, sponsored by Shea Moisture. This event is taking place on 11th March 2018 and is aimed at honouring and celebrating mothers, grandmothers, foster mothers, stepmothers and carers – all those mothers who are still with us, those who are abroad and those who have passed away.

This special dinner and dance will be hosted by Angie Greaves, presenter on Magic FM and Magic Soul who will present Keynote speaker Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons. Representatives from Shea Moisture will be presenting all the awards and certificates.

For your entertainment, the evening will consist of Salsa dancing with Vivalasalsa and line dancing with Steppinline. Special appearances include Paulette Tajah-Bell and Joshua Kesler, with DJs L.T.D, Satisfaxion and Daddy Ernie playing some great music to dance to. So, if you would like to celebrate with your mum and show her how much you care or just simply wish to remember your mum in style then why not come along to this very special event and bring along a photo of her. Together let’s pay homage to our mums!
