APNI Chairman, Wilson Clarke, and family have set up a JustGiving page in memory of his mother Brenda who sadly passed away in February 2021.
“Born on 5th August 1935 in Highbury, Islington, Brenda Jean was the younger of three girls. She met her sweetheart, Barry, after starting work at Midland Bank and went on to have three children of her own, who certainly kept her busy over the years. Brenda enjoyed life to the full, whether that be with her family and many grandchildren, or on plenty of holidays across the world. Sadly in 2017 Brenda was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and in 2019 moved into a care home, where she passed away on 2nd February this year. When our dear wife, mum, auntie, nana and friend passed away last month, after contracting Covid19, we wanted to choose a suitable charity instead of flowers in her memory. Brenda supported many charitable causes over the years but the loss of a dear family member to acute post natal depression meant that one in particular was especially close to her heart. The Association for Post Natal Illness (APNI) helps anyone in need and provides vital, life-saving support to mothers and families, despite receiving no government funding. Brenda saw the devastation this illness can have on so many and we know that she would be happy for donations in her memory to support such an important cause.”
