Can you help me to help my mum get the recognition she deserves?

Can you help me to help my mum get the recognition she deserves?

Posted on: Nov 11, 2022

I've just found out that my mum has been shortlisted for the 'Matrure-preneur' category in the massively prestigious Independent Awards.

I can't begin to tell you how I feel about this and how much it would mean to me if she won. If you've followed our story you will know that Spice Kitchen was set up for mum as a retirement hobby, and she has gone on to achieve so so much.

It would mean the absolute world to me if you would take a minute to vote for her here.

I'm obviously 100% biased, but mum is truly someone who deserves to be recognised in this world. Here are some of the wonderful things she has done that she doesn't even think are amazing: 

  • Creating employment opportunities for women from disadvantaged communities who help her to sew the silk saris for our tins 
  • Sewing face massk for the NHS for free all the way through the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Ensuring we donate a % of our profits to a charity in India to help provide schoolchildren with a meal
  • Opened up her home to family members in India wanting to start a new life in the UK 
  • Being an awesome cook and rustling up food for the family and the Spice Kitchen team at a moment's notice 
  • Writing her first cookbook this year, in her seventh decade!

Let's get her over the finish line with this award! 

Mum, I love you. We all love you. Keep being who you are.
