Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Having baby Dylan in 2015 was a dream come true and in many ways a joyful time, it has also been a very difficult year in places due to my struggles with Postnatal depression (PND).

My husband Ben has been a total rock, our families & friends have been a great help and Dylan has been a ray of light keeping me going and smiling. However I could not make the recovery I am making without also meeting Liz Wise and attending her support group which is run and funded through a charity named Cedar House. Meeting other mums experiencing something similar has been such an important thing for me and has removed so much isolation and stigma. Liz's experience and knowledge of PND has been a lifeline and a huge reassurance & help to me.

I want to give back to Liz and Cedar House not only because I'm so grateful for the support they have given me personally, but also because of all the support they provide others. As a self funding charity donations and fundraising are paramount for the charity to continue its great work of helping mothers in need.

I would be so delighted if you could give whatever is possible to this cause pretty please :) Anyone who knows my current fitness level will know that doing a 5 mile swim in a pool is a big feat! (over 300 lengths!) But it's one I really want to challenge myself to do.

My darling Ben will come along to my chosen venue (tbc) and be my counter and capture evidence! My goal is to do this swim in the summer / Autumn of this year (2016). I shall keep you updated on the time, venue and training and meanwhile I would like to thank you so much for any support you can offer. 

With heartfelt thanks,
