A BANFF mum who remained strong for her family while her husband overcame severe injuries from a construction accident has won the Banffshire Journal's Mother's Day competition.
Elaine Christie (43), of Whinhill Road, supported children Abbie (14) and Sean (17) while their dad Allan (46) was in intensive care.
He was crushed by a one and a half tonne pipe while working on the Aberdeen bypass.
Elaine won a Dean's of Huntly hamper, afternoon tea for two at their visitor centre and a bouquet of flowers from the Banffie.
