SUPER-AMAZING MUMS (tesco mum of the year 2012)

All Mums are amazing, but there are some who truly go above and beyond. Women who just blow you away with the remarkable sacrifices they make, and the vital services they provide.

Like Helen Wynne, 40, of Wrexham. After six heart-breaking miscarriages, Helen and husband Dean were thrilled when she gave birth to their beautiful boy Dyfan, a much longed-for brother for their older daughter Meg.

But just one week later tiny Dyfan fell ill with meningitis. Then, more devastating news. He was diagnosed with a genetic disorder so rare he’s the only known sufferer in the whole of the UK. He would never walk, or talk.

Unable to find the top-quality specialty care her son needed, Helen retrained so she could provide it herself. Realising there must be other families in desperate need of a special-needs childminding company they could trust, she and husband Dean opened Blythswood Childcare Services in 2004.

Today they care for up to 12 children at a time, and also provide respite care for families who desperately need a break. No wonder then, that Helen has just been named Tesco’s Achieving Mum of the Year.

But she’s just one of the amazing, deserving winners across the different categories for Tesco Mum of the Year 2012. A full list of ALL the amazing women will be announced soon, and you’ll be able to read about them all on the TESCO MAGAZINE WEBSITE

Just make sure you have your tissues handy!!
