Georgia 'Lady Diana' Wynter makes the adage 'Do good and good will follow you' come true. Since 1997, through her organisation The Diana Outreach Centre, she has been doing makeovers of mothers in inner-city communities in the Corporate Area who contribute to helping those around them.

Mother's Day weekend was memorable for three mothers. Eva Anderson, Alva Sinclair and Laurel Sutherland were pampered and received a full makeover just in time for Mother's Day. Why does she do it? "There is much more to life than hardship. Some mothers get up at 2 a.m. to sweep the streets, you have to appreciate that person, it's hard work. Some of them have so many children that any money they work they use to send them to school and provide for them. There is none left for them to spend on themselves, you want to make them feel special."

Donations came from Woolworth (Spanish Town), LIME telecommunications company, Mothers', Vanessa's Beauty Salon, Jewel and Casa Blanca hotels, A&S Hats and Variety Store, Sharon Bless, Trevor Clothing and A-Z Accessories and Things.
