We raise awareness and fund research to ensure all ICP babies are born safely


Right guys, here’s the thing. You probably know I hate spiders.  I REALLY HATE SPIDERS!   But apparently I am willing to hold one in order to raise a few pounds for the charity who pretty much saved Bella and Teddy’s lives. 

ICP Support are really struggling financially and who will continue the research into why ICP causes stillbirths like our first son Oliver (who died at 38 weeks when my doctor totally disregarded my itching and other symptoms) if ICP Support are no longer around?  Who will raise crucial awareness and support terrified parents-to-be?

As the condition is genetic, I am also scared for Bella’s future babies - we had no idea it was in our family and it could affect your own children in the same way.  Scary thought, huh?

So scary spider-holding seems appropriate for an arachnophobe who has regularly had to apologise to neighbours for her middle-of-the-night screams! 

The date has been set for 17th August 2018 and I promise to do a video/ Facebook live thing to prove that I am actually doing it - not a photoshopped picture (😂 yet so tempting!) and the more total is raised the worse it will get for me. 

£500 total: I will hold a spider for ten full seconds. Trust me it will feel like an eternity!

£750: I will hold a TARANTULA for ten seconds 

£1,000: I will also STROKE the tarantula for 30 seconds

£1,500: for a whole MINUTE I will tell the sodding thing I love it while singing Incy Wincey Spider 

Over £2,000:  If I haven’t already fainted I will also KISS it (Disclaimer: Actually,  if I am honest I may back out of this one, but I will try my very best and don’t think we will get this much money anyway so it’s pretty safe) 

£100 single donation buys your own idea for me to do, subject to the handler’s agreement.  

Dig deep please people!
