Church of England Mothering Sunday poll
A survey of the UK general public about their own mothers and their ideal mother.

• Over two-fifths of the Great British public say the most important thing their mother did for them was support them in some way. A third (33%) say that the most important thing their mother did for them was to always be there whenever they needed her and 11% say she gave them everything they needed.

• A number of the public gained values from their mother. Almost a fifth (18%) say that she taught them to do the right thing, 11% say she showed them the value of hard work and 7% say she was a positive role model.

• Princess Diana is most likely to be named as the ideal mother (5%).

• 1% name the Virgin Mary as the ideal mother, the same amount that suggest Michelle Obama and Mary Poppins.
