The recipient of this issue’s bouquet is Katrina Kent of Belper. She was nominated by her daughter Leanne Whysall also of Belper. Here’s what Leanne had to say:
"I would like to nominate my mum, Katrina Kent for a bouquet of flowers this month. She is the best!!
My mum is my best friend and she would do anything for me. She has helped so much since the day my daughter Sophie was born and has been there for me whilst setting up my new business, Stately Brides. She’ll look after Sophie for an hour whilst I go to the bank, come round to do my ironing and has given me her total support of our new business. She is truly amazing and I love her to bits.
Without my mum, Stately Brides would not have been possible and I would have had to return to work and leave Sophie full time; now I have the best of both worlds and get to see loads of my mum too.
Please, please, please could you send her one of the amazing bouquets?" Leanne Whysall
