Daily Mirror - - NEWS - JAN­ICE JINKS

Fos­ter carer Jan­ice was nom­i­nated by her proud daugh­ter Nikita Curry. Jan­ice has been a fos­ter carer for 30 years and has helped bring up more than 50 young­sters.

Jan­ice, of Don­caster, has also be­come a fos­ter grand­mother in her role as a Mock­ing­bird hub carer, a spe­cially trained fos­ter carer who sup­ports chil­dren and fos­ter fam­i­lies across Don­caster.

Daugh­ter Nikita says: “My mum does ev­ery­thing for us and never asks for any­thing in re­turn.

“Well, now we’ve fi­nally been able to give some­thing back.”

Jan­ice, her hus­band and two of their fos­ter chil­dren are now en­joy­ing a well-earned break in Or­lando.

She says: “Go­ing to Or­lando and be­ing part of the show has been a once in a life­time ex­pe­ri­ence for me and the chil­dren I fos­ter.

“Fos­ter­ing is one of the most re­ward­ing things I have ever done and I would never have ex­pected to be cho­sen for a prize like this.”
