Your Champions 2011: Connah’s Quay ‘mum in a million’ nominated for award

A MUM in a million has been nominated for a Your Champions Award in the person category.

Patricia Halliwell, 68, of Brookdale Avenue, Connah’s Quay, has been nominated by her daughter Amanda Bell.

“There are not many people like my mother around,” said Amanda. “She is one in a million and will do anything for anyone.”

Amanda has praised her mum for ‘dropping everything’ to support her when she was rushed to hospital recently with suspected thyroid cancer.

“She was in the middle of moving house and is not in the best of health herself, but she just dropped everything to look after my two children and house while I was in hospital,” said Amanda.

“She came to stay for 10 days while I got back on my feet and I wouldn’t have coped without her.

“My sister-in-law then had a major operation, so my mother went from my house to hers to help look after her family and she’s currently at the home of my sister supporting her.

“I really do think she’s a worthy winner for the Your Champions Awards.”
