Quayside Shopping Centre teamed up with the Mercy Primary School in Sligo to allow students a chance to participate in this year’s themed art competition ‘’Put Mum in the Picture’’
Students drew and coloured pictures of their mums to win a selection of prizes sponsored by the centre and local businesses. The art-work was put on display in the shopping mall where students were invited to come visit with their families and show off their masterpieces.
First prize was a beautiful hamper worth over €100 sponsored by Cara Pharmacy in Quayside, and this was won by Teighan Derwin.
Second prize was a bumper hamper filled with a selection of chocolates and goodies sponsored by Dealz in Quayside Shopping Centre and this was won by Nicole Clancy.
Third prize was a beautiful bouquet of flowers sponsored by Feehily’s Florist in Sligo and this was won by Tyler Fox.
All the kids who entered this year’s art competition were giving a box of chocolates as a thank you from Quayside Shopping Centre.
Centre Manager, Christine Dolan told the Sligo Weekender that the art competition is getting more popular each year. It is a wonderful competition and very heart-warming to read the different entries that come in. Every year we team up with different local primary schools and are delighted to display an art gallery filled with colourful drawings on display for customer’s to enjoy. The kids from the mercy were absolutely thrilled to win a prize for their mum.
Quayside Shopping Centre also held an online mother’s day competition on their facebook page, giving mums the chance to nominate themselves or a friend to win the ultimate Mother’s Day prize. The overall prize was for a €1000 Invisalign voucher from David Mc Conville Orthodontics, a CACI non-surgical facelift from Westend Beauty Clinic, a Wash & Blowdry Hair voucher from Lydia Murray Hair & Beauty & a €50 shopping voucher for River Island. The lucky winner this year was Tonia Mc Morrow from Sligo. Tonia received an overwhelming amount of nominations from her friends and family and she was over the moon to have received such support.
