The Daily Mail Inspirational Woman of the Year - Naomi Thomas
I couldn't be more proud to share the incredible news that yesterday, Naomi Thomas, the founder of The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, who I support every Wednesday on this blog with my Wonderful Wedding Wednesday posts, was crowned The Daily Mail Inspirational Woman of the Year 2013!
Naomi tirelessly camapaigns, even when her own cancer battle no doubt makes her so tired she just needs to think of herself. She doesn't.
Everyday she pours her heart in raising money for terminally ill people to have the wedding of their dreams like she did.
She is so deserving of this award and I am thrilled all her hard work has been recognised at a National level.
Naomi - you are a credit to the industry, a credit to your family and I couldn't be more inspired by you.
But I know what she would really like, as well as a lovely message, is £1.
Less than the price of a loaf of bread at the petrol station, to a charity who desperately wants to help as many people as they can have their special day.
Naomi, in her spare 5 minutes (What spare 5 minutes?!) has also founded a brand new regional wedding industry awards, The Bristol and Somerset Wedding Awards to recognise the talent of local suppliers.
The awards are open for suppliers to enter and clients are invited to vote for them, to ensure no matter what size of business you are, your talent can be rewarded.
Entries close on the 16th December so if you are a wedding industry bod in Brizzle get your skates on!
