Two young girls from Edenham Primary School have been presented with the Bourne Local Rose Award for helping to look after their ‘poorly’ mum.

Sisters, Daisy, aged eight, and Tansy, aged seve, were nominated for the Local’s Rose Award by their mum, Lucy Taylor who believed they deserved recognition for their caring attitude.

Lucy, who has been on crutches since September, nominated her two young girls for the award for going ‘above and beyond’ to help support her during a ‘difficult’ time.

She said: “I’m really proud of them both. For their age, they’ve done so well to look after me whilst I’m not very well.” Daisy and Tansy were presented with their Rose Award’s in front of their fellow school pupils, who were just as excited as the two girls.

Daisy said: “I’m speechless, it’s a big surprise! It’s such a lovely rose. I’ve been on crutches before and I wanted to do something to help my mum.”

Tansy adds: “I love my award, I’m going to put it in a nice vase to go in my room and show all of my friends.”

To help their mum, the girls have been getting involved in all aspects of their mum’s every day jobs, including cooking, cleaning and helping to do the shopping.

Daisy said: “We help mum get dressed in the morning, as well as putting her shoes on. We also help to cook dinner and make our lunch boxes in the morning.”

Tansy adds: “We also help to do the shopping and collect wood for the fire as well as put it out at night time.”

Lucy is really proud of both of her daughters, who have made a massive effort to help support their mum whilst she’s been on crutches.

She said: “They have been so supportive, I’m a proud mother.”
