This Sunday the 10th of May 2015 is Mother’s Day. A day where yes we celebrate and thank our own mothers, but we also recognise step mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, friends and any other motherly figure in our lives.
Although we followed the tradition of having a Mother’s Day from the UK and United States it is in fact an Australian, Janet Heyden from Sydney is said to of created the tradition of giving gifts on Mother’s Day in 1924 for lonely aged mothers.
Many Mother’s Day event organisations are held to raise funds for illnesses like breast cancer. The Mother’s Day Classic walk or run was started in 1998 and has been an increasingly popular event to go to for mother’s day each year! This event focuses on raising funds for breast cancer research, which is the most common cancer for women in Australia.
In Melton many schools like Melton West Primary celebrate Mother’s Day by hosting a Mother’s Day brunch for mother’s and motherly figures of students who attend the primary school. Woodgrove Shopping Centre in Melton’s West is holding a stand in the middle of the centre where you are able to take a seat and write a message on a post it note for your mother/motherly figure and attach it to the display boards. You can also have your Mother’s Day gift wrapped for FREE.
Bunnings Melton will be hosting DIY workshops for kids to create a specially made Mother’s Day gift. There is a ‘Mother and Kids night on Thursday the 7th of May starting at 6:00 PM where there will be lots of crafts to do as well as a sausage sizzle and Pete the Magician! On Saturday the 9th of May from 11:00 AM there will be another workshop taking place.
