This Mother's Day our thoughts turn towards how amazing our mums really are. From making us dinner after dinner, to giving us that much-needed mum's advice, what would we do without her? This spring, it's time to say 'thanks mum', spend quality time with her, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Whether it's a luxury day out, a picnic, or a family roast, why not 'take life higher' and do something different with mum?

To help you start to spring in style, here's your chance to WIN a Baking Gift Hamper worth £65 courtesy of Hotel Chocolat. Bake sweet chocolate treats with luxurious cocoa ingredients and let their 'A New Way Of Cooking with Chocolate' recipe book be your guide.

For your chance to win, simply visit our Facebook page and comment on the competition post, sharing one of your favourite memories with mum and tagging your mum.

The competition ends on Saturday 25th March at 9 pm.

The winner will be selected at random and announced on Mother's Day evening (Sunday 27th March 2017 before 11 pm).


Good luck and happy Mother's Day from all of us here at Virgin Balloon Flights.
