Hobby Horses Race Night at Jaguar Land Rover!

A huge thank you to VP&S, a department within Jaguar Land Rover, who hosted a charity fund raising event on Friday 9th November and raised much needed funds for APP!

"We raised £1120, which was split between The Marston Green Lions, who ran the evening for us, Brain Tumour Research and Action on Postpartum Psychosis. The evening took the format of horse racing - the main difference being the horses were hobby horses! There were seven races, containing six horses each; there was an opportunity for race goers to ‘buy and own’ one of the 42 horses, and if your horse won – you got half of the auction money, the other half going to the charities. The purchasing of horses, was a quiet affair for the first couple of races, but it soon gathered pace, with the six horses in the final race, being auctioned off for the princely sum of £167 in total. We had a raffle, which raised a considerable amount of money too.

Thank you to Solihull Moors FC for providing us with the room for the event and to all those, who sponsored races, supplied raffle prizes and made monetary donations."

And it looks like they had a really fun evening!

'Some Voices, Swing' for APP!

Banner

Thank you to 'London's coolest choir' Some Voices, who have chosen to support APP at their Christmas 'Seasonal Speakeasy' concert this year.

Some Voices are supporting APP after they tragically lost one of their members earlier this year, they say: "Earlier this year Some Voices tragically lost a member and friend of our community to a very rare but very serious mental health condition. Postpartum Psychosis is a severe, but treatable, form of mental illness that occurs after having a baby. It can happen ‘out of the blue’ to women without previous experience of mental illness, and affects 1,400 women in the UK every year.

Every term we support a carefully selected charity, and this term we are proudly supporting ‘Action on Postpartum Psychosis’ who offer vital support for families affected by the illness, as well as fund life- changing research and training. Some Voices have already raised nearly £200 for APP from this terms social events, and we plan to increase this figure dramatically over the coming weeks through our upcoming show ’Seasonal Speakeasy’. We hope to see you there."

Angela's Reading Rivermead 10K!

Running-2-4096x2731
Thank you to Angela, who is running the Reading Rivermead 10km on Sunday 4th November in aid of APP!

AngelaAngela says: "Three years ago I personally benefited from attending the 'APP art retreat in Devon', which was a really positive experience. Mothers who had recovered or in recovery were able to meet, eat, enjoy each others company, share experiences and heal through actively participating in art projects. This was an extremely beneficial and therapeutic experience for everyone who attended and I knew then that I wanted to give back and do something to raise awareness of this small charity which greatly benefits women who have suffered from Postpartum Psychosis. I hope with your help we can raise some money for APP and help women with their recovery and support their research too."

Please support Angela and donate via her JustGiving page here.

Thank you so much Angela, we hope you have a fantastic day on 4th November and wish you all the best with the training!
