Burnham-On-Sea mum has been shortlisted for a national award after
being selected from thousands of entrants.
Sue Stevens, 71, has made it to the final 26 nominees of the
Mum of the Year Awards 2015.
The mother of three and grandmother of six has dedicated more
than 30 years of her life to raising funds for children in Kenya
through charitable events in Burnham.
Sue has been involved with the charity Educate
the Kids for over 16 years in order to try and help feed,
educate and give clothes to children in one of the poorest regions
Sue said: "Its a little overwhelming to be honest
and I was so surprised to find out I had been nominated because
I have been fundraising for so long, but it's wonderful."
The competition's sponsor, Tesco, has given £1,000 towards
the charity in announcing that Sue is on the Tesco
shortlist for the mum of the year award.
Sue's next fundraiser is this coming Saturday, November 15th,
at Burnham Methodist Church when she'll be holding a coffee morning
Sue makes regular trips to Kenya, taking clothes and goods that
she has collected and sorted herself and she says seeing the children
benefit is what keeps her motivated.
