Shelly and Laura Laura James nominated her mum Shelley for a Cake My Day surprise because of all the great work Shelley and the rest of the team at National Star College do to help students with disabilities live an independent life.

Shelley has also recently lost her mum and Laura said the surprise pinata cake really brightened her day.

Laura said: “I am extremely proud of my mother for completing her psychology degree and for her dedication to working with children and students with disabilities. She has a big heart and always puts everyone before her and goes above and beyond.”
