APNI is very grateful to Claire Bailey for her fundraising effort by climbing up Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Claire had chosen to support APNI as she knows how hard it is for small charities to get funding. Claire did not suffer from postnatal illness herself but have had her children abroad and benefited massively from baby groups and the companionship of other mums in the same position. And she thought this was even more relevant for women with postnatal illness so she would like to help support these mums and the work of APNI.
After a gruelling 9-hour climb, Claire reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro and raising £954 along the way. Claire said: “Huge thanks to everyone for your sponsorship and for helping support the Association for Post Natal Illness and all the women who benefit from their work. Climbing Kili was an adventure I’ll never forget and it’s lovely to know that every step taken will go on to help others take small steps towards health and wellness. Thank you!”
