1 Mins read

Two women from Coleraine are in the running to be crowned SuperValu SuperMum 2016.

The overall winner of the competition will be revealed at  the Grand Final on 28th September at Parliament Building, Stormont hosted by TV personality Claire McCollum.

The finalists from Coleraine are:

  • Siobhan McKay (36) – Siobhan was nominated by her daughter Kayleigh for her positive outlook on life despite facing sudden illness last year. Last October, Siobhan suffered from collapsed lungs, an unexpected and terrifying experience for both herself and her family, she had to undergo surgery on her lungs.
  • Charlene Dickey (30) –  Charlene was nominated by her sister Shona when she never gave up the fight to give her son Oliver the chance to walk, when he was diagnosed at 18 months with Cerebral Palsy. Charlene set up a fundraising appeal after researching an operation that would give Oliver the chance to walk in America. Working tirelessly to help raise the money including radio and TV interviews, Charlene raised almost double the target of £60,000 for Oliver’s life changing operation, which has also secured Oliver’s long term and aftercare equipment needs and watched him take his first steps just months later.

The winner will go home with a family trip to Disneyland Paris courtesy of Clubworld Travel and all finalists will receive a pamper hamper.
