Last week, APS Bank launched a competition on the occasion of Mother’s Day. Participation was open to the general public and consisted of a simple letter expressing love for their mother figure.
An overwhelming number of entries was received and the winning submission, recipient of a €200 One4All Voucher, was Amanda Attard Cassar’s, who wrote:
One day out of the year, I have this beautiful opportunity to give back to the person who has given me so much. You are my best friend and you always have been. I’ve seen your love when you attended my sporting events, posted on Facebook about how proud you are of me and when you comforted me at times that life became a little too tough to handle. From supporting me emotionally through my awkward school days, to sacrificing your personal time after your long days at work to talk me through my problems when no one else cared, you have always been there. You have sacrificed so much in order to give me a better life than you had. As I get older, I realise more and more how much you have done for me and continue to do every day.
The jury was headed by Hervé Delpech, Chief Strategy Officer, who said, “It was a pleasure and sometimes emotional reading these letters, showing one’s love towards their mother. The winning letter highlights the loving support of a mother throughout the journey of life.”
