Purple party at Hoon Ridge

Last year, APP trustees from the Derby area hosted a 'Purple Party' at Hoon Ridge. Picture: table tennis; bean-bag tossing; field skittles; badminton; 'How many APP balloons in a mini?'; children's art tent; a cake stall heaped with donations; tombola; an impressive auction of artwork, fine wines, holiday accommodation, business tuition and much more ….; toddlers' play garden; sports massages; pamper sessions; cream teas and champagne; beer and curries etc ...all rounded off with a game of rounders: men v women! (the ladies won hands-down...almost). We cannot thank enough all those who helped or came along to support, trustees, members, regional representatives, entire families – press-ganged into cooking, clearing, serving, erecting. The afternoon raised almost £2,200 for APP which is just an amazing amount to have achieved.

Willis Associates Support APP at Christmas & New Year

190px-WillisLogo

Christmas tree

What a heartening start to 2014 for the fundraising team of APP!

Between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve the company Willis Group nominates 3 charities who each share the donations from associates who are in the office over that period. They operate a "dress down" policy on each of those days and associates donate each day they come in to work.

What a brilliant way of giving associates a voice and in the process : giving support to charities like ours who are doing such hard work on behalf of women and families affected by Postpartum Psychosis.

Warm thanks are due to all at Willis Associates for their very generous cheque and especially to their colleague who nominated APP - as being eminently worthy of their company's support.

Birmingham Family Fun Event

Birmingham Purple PartyOn 18th Aug , APP 's Heather Heron and Nic Muckelroy journeyed to Martineau Gardens in Birmingham to attend a special family fun event organised by staff of Birmingham's Mother & Baby Unit (MBU). We are grateful to Giles Berrisford and Clare Hooper for affording us the opportunity to man an APP stall in order to raise awareness of PP. It was a hugely enjoyable day for those families who have benefited from such a great facility as the Birminham MBU and for those friends who continue to support it. If you have not been to Martineau gardens : go ! It is a wonderfully quirky little place for children and families.

Sotheby's Staff Summer Exhibition

On 25th July, Sotheby's organised a Staff Summer Exhibition in London. APP was the chosen charity and a great preview evening was enjoyed by a huge throng of invited guests, including APP trustees. We are greatly indebted to the team at Sotheby's including all of the artists and those who produced the impressive catalogue. It was humbling to see Sotheby's staff working so hard on our behalf, both on the special preview night and prior to it.  Informative and moving speeches were delivered by Nic Muckelroy and Prof. Ian Jones and the feedback from all involved was really positive.

We will report soon on the final amount raised at this event.
