Foxy Bingo have announced their Mum Of The Year for 2014. This year's title was won by 64 year old Elizabeth Ashcroft from Cheshire. Elizabeth was chosen for the award after Foxy learned that she's been a foster carer for many years, and has opened her home to many vulnerable young children. By fostering, Elizabeth provided a much-needed safe and loving environment.
Elizabeth was nominated by her daughter Andrea. She told Foxy Bingo -"She [Elizabeth] is the greatest mum in the world and an inspiration to those who have ever been lucky to meet this wonderful lady. She has helped, loved and cared for me and so many more people besides". The story is all the more amazing as Elizabeth has limited mobility due to chronic arthritis. This hasn't stopped her from continuing her foster work.
As part of her well deserved prize, Elizabeth was taken to London for a star make-over at Foxy TV studios before a special guest appearance on Foxy TV, where she told her inspiring and uplifting story to presenter James. She also wins holiday vouchers, no doubt which she’ll use to take her family on a well-deserved break! You can see the interview in the clip above.
Elizabeth was naturally overjoyed to be named Mum Of The Year and told Foxy "What an honour it is to be named Foxy’s Mum of the Year! I was so touched when I got the call to say Andrea had nominated me – it was a very emotional moment. There are mums all over the country doing what I do, and working just as hard, so it’s great that Foxy is recognising us mums in this way!"
Our congratulations go out to Elizabeth and Andrea. It's great to see Foxy recognising hard working mums although let's hope that they also do the same for the dads too later in the year. Surprisingly the site hasn't gone for a Celebrity Mum Of The Year this time round. However, the Foxy awards always seem to be overshadowed by those run by Tesco which seem to be bigger, bolder and brighter - and even feature on TV. This year Tesco awarded their celeb title to Dame Sarah Storey.
