Mother’s Day is a time of commemoration and celebration of moms everywhere. It is a time for breakfasts in bed, family gatherings and precious gift giving to show mom how much you care.

To celebrate mothers this year, The Village Mall partnered with Swan Air Travel and Safaris Ltd and Carlson Wagonlit to send three special mother’s away on a holiday trip with a friend.

In a campaign called “Mummy and Me”, which run on both social media and on ground at the mall from the 25th of April, participants had to share images of themselves with their mother on The Village Mall Facebook page. The deciding was left to the public as the pictures with most likes won. However, on ground, participants had to present receipts from any mall outlet to enter the post. A grand draw held on Saturday 7th May, 2016 saw Berna Buguruba emerge the winner of 3 night’s accommodation at Blue Bay Beach Resort, which is a 5- star hotel in Zanzibar. Online, Anne Ruth Semwanga Kiwala won two nights at the luxury Lake Victoria Serena Hotel for two nights and Nuwaha Talent won a round trip to Lakeside Adventure Park.
