Inspiring stories from some of our amazing customers
My mother who died in 2005 - like all mothers she cared for her husband and me, always putting us first. During Covid I came to realise how she must have felt during WW2 - without her husband and a very loud war around her but they carried on with day to day things. When my father returned from the war life carried on with so many shortages and when I was born she made sure I was looked after she made all her own clothes for the family, she baked and cared for her loved ones. Life was hard - it is so much easier these days. My mother inspired me and my children.
I'm inspired by my best friend Susie, she's had a few health issues to deal with during the last few years but throughout she's stayed positive, strong and resilient. She inspires me every day!
The late Queen Elizabeth, Dame Judy Dench, Joanna Lumley, Germaine Greer, to name a few. I like them because, they are talented people, but they are not self centred, they have humility, they are honest, but kind and they all have a great sense of humour.
My mum - she inspired me to be strong, determined and to not take life too seriously. Live for every day as we don't know what tomorrow could bring.
My daughter @alexandrahewittt, a mother herself now she's raising her little girls to be kind, resilient, fun loving and to enjoy life!
My sister Lyn. It's the little things she does that inspire me, always looking for the positive in any situation and always thinking of others before herself.
