APNI staff attended the Haringey Mums and Bubs Charity Pub Quiz organised by Hilda Ho. It was a really lovely event held at The Westbury Pub attended by a good number of locals mums, dads and their babies. The pub quiz raised £280 for APNI which will help us continue our work in supporting mums out there who are suffering. Hilda wrote on her JustGiving page: “This idea of a ‘pub quiz for mums’ was suggested during a passing conversation with another mother and that there should be more activities aimed at mothers rather than just babies.

Motherhood can get quite lonely and monotonous at times and I admit, I’ve had a few days here and there when I wished I could talk about anything else other than how often my son does a poo. I came across the Association for Postnatal Illness one day after this conversation and thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could get all the mothers together in Haringey and help raise awareness for this service? I hope the quiz will give us the opportunity to have a bit of fun outside our current day (and night!) job and bring together a closer community of new mothers in the local area during this life changing time.” Big thanks to Hilda and all the lovely families of Haringey.
