Mother’s Day is fast approaching on 14 March, and whilst you might not be able to spend the day together you can still treat her to something lovely from a range of shops in Leicester.

Yes, Mother’s Day will have a different feel to it this year but there are plenty of fabulous ways you can still ensure that she has a magical day.

In this week’s BID Spotlight we’ve pulled together a few ideas in case you need a little mum-spiration.
