Ginger Mum Column: Are you a fan of the Strongest Man?

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, shares how you can win tickets to a TV event and Mother’s Day gift ideas.

Merry March everyone, welcome to the onset of spring at last! I’ve got some exciting news for you if you are a fan of the cult show UK’s Strongest Man!

There’s a comp currently running on my blog to win a family ticket for the semi-finals on Sunday 24th May – a great start to the half term week for my lucky winner!

Now in its 16th year, UK’s Strongest Man is one of the longest running TV series, having been televised every year since its conception, and in 2020 it will be the biggest yet.

Up to 12,000 fans will witness the family favourite strength show – making it officially the biggest strongman show in the world!

16 Strongmen from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will descend on our very own Stadium MK to battle it out over 3 days of jaw-dropping competition in a bid to win the title currently held by Scotsman Paul Benton.

Great athlete entrances, fab music, world record attempts and audience participation make UK’s Strongest Man a fab family day out – make sure you check out my blog for all the info on how to enter!

I am a bit of a candle obsessive and a recent discovery is local brand O&H Candles, based in Bedford and their matt black jar candles are a bit of a showstopper. Not to mention the fantastic aroma that it wafts around my bedroom.

Check them out on etsy or Insta for great gift giving!

Also on the subject of Mother’s Day this year, I just found out that the gorgeous brand Sara Miller London are donating 100% of their profits of the sale of their Hummingbird collection to Grief Encounter, one of the UK’s leading child bereavement charities.

I can’t think of a nicer way to gift to perfection and do some good at the same time, can you?

Alternatively, a wonderful way to mark Mother’s Day is with theatre tickets to enjoy together. MK Theatre is, as usual, bringing us all the big name shows and March and April have some absolute corkers – enjoy!
