THOSE who have lost their mums are still getting a chance to take part in Mother Days celebrations.

The Co-Op Funeral care centre in Cumnock has introduced a memorial tree and are encouraging people to leave the names of loved ones on it’s branches.

Anyone who has lost someone and wants to remember them for the holiday can write out a tag and tie it to the tree in tribute to them.

It doesn’t matter if you didn’t hold the funeral at the Co-Op, everyone is welcome to share a tag.

Seeds will also be available for people to plant in memory of their mum.

The project is trying to offer comfort to those who find Mother Day particularly hard and still want to honour their mum, even if she isn’t with them anymore.

A spokesperson for Co-Op said: “It’s just really a memorial tree for people who want to remember someone.

“We usually put one up at Christmas and invite people to put a tag on the tree but this year we thought we would do it for Mothers Day as well.

“People can come and write a tag and stick it on the tree for their mum to show they still care and want to celebrate her.

“We have had a few stick up tags so far and want more people to come and add names.

“It doesn’t need to be people we have held a funeral for, it can just be anyone who wants to remember their mum.

“We are open Monday to Friday so feel free to pop in whenever if you want to contribute to the tree.

“We are also doing bookmarks with seeds that they can plant in memory of their mothers.”
