Voice of the Milton Keynes Citizen: ‘Mothers are amazing but Kim stands apart, let’s do all we can to help her’

Our take on the issues in Milton Keynes this week.

Amazing mum

Mothers are amazing! But this year we think it is worth singling out one – Kim Smith.

Kim, 56, had both her arms and legs amputated after a kidney infection threatened her life.

They turned black and the infection risked killing her.

Now her family has launched a crowdfunding appeal to buy top of the range artificial limbs.

As figures have revealed, some £5.3m is was splurged on MK’s amazing mums.

If just a percentage of that is diverted from the usual chocolates, flowers and cards, our lovely readers could help do something amazing and completely change the life of one amazing MK mum.

Potholes

It would be remiss for us not to mention the menace of potholes in MK too.

With winters being entirely predictable, surely it must be possible to better plan resources to properly repair them?
