Mother’s Day glowed more brightly for 145 women in care on Sunday.

Members and friends of the Rotary Club of Port Pirie distributed posies at St Joseph’s, Hammill House, Lealholme and the hospital on the special day.

The helpers included Barry and Kristina Mudge, Philip Johns, Sebastian Mezzino, Alan Paterson, Lianne Porter, Dennis Coad, Greg Mayfield and Barbara Camporeale.

The Anglican Guild prepared the bouquets from flowers grown by Rotarian Mario Valente and his wife Jeannette and some other suppliers. Guild member and Rotarian Lettie Allen said the church group was thrilled to be involved. “We are really happy to be able to help with Rotary in being out in the community and caring for the mothers,” she said.
