WEARSIDE treasure Denise Robertson headed home to honour the city’s women ahead of Mother’s Day.
The TV agony aunt and author made an appearance at the Stadium of Light yesterday to meet mothers, grandmothers and female guardians to share some stories from her 26-year TV career.
Denise, who was joined at the event by ITV News and Daybreak reporter Philippa Tomson, said she was pleased to be back in the city for the event, which was organised by Sunderland AFC’s official charity, the Foundation of Light.
“The Foundation does some fantastic work in the community, and it’s great to be a speaker at the first ever Ladies’ Lunch event that the Foundation has held,” she said. “It was a special afternoon for me and I know the mums and guests enjoyed the afternoon too.”
