Three Cheers for Megan who bravely completed her skydive in aid of APP on Saturday! Megan's first jump scheduled for the beginning of June was postponed on the day due to poor weather conditions, but the sun shone brightly last Saturday, 30th June, for Megan's jump to take place!
After Megan's jump she posted up on the APP Facebook page about her experience, and said: "I DID IT! Absolutely 100% the best thing I've ever done in my life...I enjoyed it so much, I'm booked in for a second turn at 3pm (at my own expense!) Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me, you've really made a difference!"
And for her second jump, she managed to persuade her sister and partner to join her!
Megan said: "It was absolutely amazing! If you've never done one I recommend that you do. I simply can't put it into words how much of an experience it was. I'm so pleased at how much awareness we have raised as well, there are so many people who have sponsored me that simply didn't know about PP before. I feel so proud of myself and my family!"
Megan chose to jump in aid of APP after her sister suffered with Postpartum Psychosis in 2017, she said her sister "was lucky enough to be given a place in a Mother and Baby Unit in Leeds where she could be looked after by a psychiatric team whilst remaining with Ethan. They were accompanied 24 hours a day to ensure their safety and it is charities like APP that help campaign for these wonderful services. Hayley has since benefited from other APP services such as the use of other women’s stories to help process what has happened to her. Without this support Hayley wouldn’t have made the progress she has made in such a short space of time. As a family also recovering from this traumatic time we have benefited from the resources APP provide."
APP are also very proud of you Megan, and congratulations on completely smashing your fundraising target too, amazing!
You can still donate to Megan's JustGiving page here for the next couple of weeks.
Thank you once again to Megan for her wonderful support and heroic jump in aid of APP!
