We would like to say how grateful we are to Lucy Rome for raising £1,058 for APNI.  Lucy ran 10k for each month in the last 10 months in order to raise much-needed funds for us and awareness of PND.  Lucy’s PND story began in March 2006 when she had her first daughter Tehilla and suffered with post natal illness.

img_16301Lucy fully recovered and she wrote in her JustGiving page:  “It’s now 10 years since I had Tehilla and she’s developed into a beautiful and sensitive girl. I’ve gone on to have two more girls, after thinking I never would, and thankfully the depression and anxiety has never returned. I am grateful for my life, and my sanity, every day.

I hope that my experiences has helped me help others as a counsellor and I have decided to dedicate the next ten months of my amazingly normal life to remembering and helping those mothers who are suffering like I did.  I am setting myself a goal: to run 10km every month for 10 months from Tehilla’s 10th birthday to raise £1,000 to help support the wonderful and tireless work that APNI do to support mums like me every day. They exist solely through kind and generous donations. ”  Well done Lucy and thank you for all you do for APNI, as a volunteer and as a fundraiser.  We are very grateful indeed.
