Mum's the Word as Sara Cox launches the search for the Tesco Mum of the Year 2012Sara Cox

Tesco have teamed up with Sara Cox to open nominations for the 2012 Tesco Mum of the Year Awards. The popular radio DJ, and mum-of-three, is the official ambassador for next year's Awards and is calling for the public to nominate any mums they know who have done something amazing to help the lives of others.

Sara Cox said: "I'm really excited to be part of the Tesco Mum of the Year Awards. I attended the 2011 Award, earlier this year, and was moved to tears by the stories of the winning mums.

"It's so important to celebrate our mums and make a fuss of them because they really deserve it - I certainly couldn't have got to where I am today without my own wonderful and supportive mum. There are millions of mums out there doing all these extraordinary things, struggling against the odds and facing challenges. If you know a mum who really deserves to be shown just how special she is, get nominating!"

The Tesco Mum of the Year Awards 2012 will be the seventh year of the Awards and are set to be the biggest and best yet. Eight inspirational mums will be honoured at the glittering, star-studded event, where they will walk the red carpet, enjoy a three-course lunch and watch performances from some of the UK's top music acts, before being presented with their Award.

Maureen Rice, Editorial Director of Tesco magazine, said: "We are very proud that 2012 will be the seventh year of the Tesco Mum of the Year Awards. During that time, we've heard so many incredible stories and met so many inspirational women. This is our chance to celebrate these unsung heroes, who, often despite their own difficult circumstances, have truly gone above and beyond to help others and make a difference."
