Join our My Mum picture special

- By Lauren Abbott

It’s one of our most popular pullouts and we aren’t about to let a global pandemic stand in the way of showing mums across Kent how much they are loved and appreciate­d.

My Mum is back this spring but we need your help to make it happen.

The exceptiona­lly popular supplement­s - in which children draw pictures and write special messages to their mum for us to publish - is loved by families across the county.

Every year hundreds of pupils submit their artwork through their schools for us to print in our newspapers, and the My Mum supplement­s serve as lovely keepsakes close to Mother’s Day, which this year is on Sunday, March 14.

But with classrooms closed to the majority of pupils and learning taking place at home, we’re asking dads, grandparen­ts, relatives, friends and older siblings to help youngsters get pictures of their mum to us so that we can include them in these special pull-outs, just as we would in any other year.

In order to get your children’s drawings to us we have designed a special website to enable you to upload them once they have finished their creations.
