Dust off your aprons and pick up your wooden spoons – we have a very exciting opportunity for you this summer and we'd love you to be part of it.
APP have been selected to be part of The Big Give campaign as part of their Women & Girls fund. This means that throughout July, every donation we receive via our campaign page on The Big Give website (www.bit.ly/APPTheBigGive) will be doubled!
As part of this we’re encouraging our supporters to take part in The Big Bake for APP!
Get together with friends or colleagues this summer and hold an awareness-raising cake sale, bake off competition, coffee morning or afternoon tea in aid of Action on Postpartum Psychosis.
Your support could help give a cake and a cuppa to a mum at an APP peer support café group.
We'll provide you with a FREE pack full of fundraising tips, ideas, APP goodies and even some of our favourite recipes! Plus during July, any donations you raise through your event will be worth TWICE as much – so if you raise £50, APP will receive £100.
Our target is to reach £5,000 in donations – meaning a total of £10,000 raised. This would make such a difference to our work – we are particularly keen to increase our offer of peer support - establishing more face to face café support groups, particularly in areas of the UK that are currently underserved. We’d also like to try and reach and support more women from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities; and to provide additional support for partners and parents of women who develop postpartum psychosis.
We know our peer support service is vital, life changing and in some cases life-saving - giving women and family members with experience of PP the opportunity to meet and talk with others.
“It has been life changing for me. I don't feel isolated at all, if anything, I feel proud to be part of this unique community of amazing, strong women and proud of everything we have been through.”
