Deborah braves Lake Windermere for the Great North Swim!

2017DeborahPage1Congratulations to Deborah Page, Clinical Team Leader of Perinatal Mental Health at Leeds MBU, who braved the cold of Lake Windermere and successfully completed the Great North Swim on 9th June!

The weather over the weekend was challenging, but all the swimmer and supporters were all fantastic and kept smiling all day.

Deborah said:

‘We did it – Sunday event was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. This resulted in an emergency child care cover Saturday morning, 2 hr drive up to Low Fell, quick jog t the event, quick change, swim the lake, out and change back, jog back to the car and 2 hrs drive back to Leeds. Today has been mainly PJ’s. Thank you all for your donations and support. It kept me going through training and the swim. In memory of those women and babies who sadly lost their lives to the cruel illness that is postnatal mental illness. x’

 A big congratulations and thank you to Deborah from all of us at APP! (and you can still donate via her Just Giving page here)
