Nominate an unsung hero for our special Mum And Daughter Of The Year awards
HAVE you nominated your mum or daughter for one of our special awards yet?
Over the last nine months we have been searching for marvellous mothers and devoted daughters to recognise in our Mum And Daughter Of The Year contest.
Each month we select one mum and one daughter – who can be related but don't have to be – to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some public recognition.
The monthly finalists will then be invited to a special event early next year where the overall winners will be crowned.

July's mother finalist, Mary Townsend, and August's daughter finalist, Claire Hodgson, have recently received their flowers courtesy of Lavender & Old Lace, in Newmarket Street, Grimsby.
Mary, 52, of Cleethorpes, cared selflessly for her severely disabled partner for three years before he sadly passed away. She also helped her children to see the "light at the end of the tunnel" following the death of their father, Bill, in 2010, aged 72.
She was nominated for the monthly Mum Of The Year finalist title by her daughter Samantha Hand, 22, of Cleethorpes.
Since Bill's death, Mary – also mum to Carl, 23 – has begun caring for others by working as a home care worker.
Meanwhile, caring for others runs in Claire's family. She was inspired to become a nurse by her mum, Susan, who currently works at Havenmere Care Home, in Immingham.
Susan nominated Claire, 26, for the Daughter Of The Year prize to thank her for being a "kind, thoughtful and understanding young woman".
Claire, who attended Immingham School, has been a nurse at Grimsby's Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital for the last five years after completing her training at Hull University.
