UNIFORM recyclers ‘Mum’s the Word’ are branching out into crafts to help families celebrate Mother’s Day.

The organisation, started by mums Caroline Fotios and Rachel Rhodes, is helping children make their own cards and gifts at both Blackburn and Darwen Markets. This Saturday, volunteers will give youngsters the chance to make a card, or gift, to give to their mum on Sunday, in return for a small donation to the organisation.

The ‘make and take’ activities will be next to the Visitor Information Desk, at Blackburn Market, and in the annexe area at Darwen Market. Caroline said: “We are passionate about recycling and helping the local community.”
