Sky Dive for APP

£590 of £790 goal

Raised by 25 people in 3 months
Created March 14, 2019
My story of PPP was recently published by Women’s Health magazine UK. I developed postpartum psychosis after the birth of our son Joshua in 2016.

Three years on, I’m still recovering and keen to do anything I can to raise money for the charity which has helped me and my family so much on our journey, APP (Action on Postpartum Psychosis).  I have benefitted so much from the peer support programme in particular and the opportunity to meet other women near me who have been through a similar mental health crisis to me.

I have to admit the idea of skydiving terrifies me as I’ve inherited my Dad’s vertigo, but I’ve learnt that fears take up as much space as you’ll give them so I’m keen to overcome the fear and jump to help other ladies in the future who will need the support of APP in their lives. Please help me raise money for this amazing cause! Every donation will help. My husband Greg will be jumping with me. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means such a huge amount to us.

More information about Action on Postpartum Psychosis: Action on Postpartum Psychosis (APP) is the National charity for women and families affected by Postpartum Psychosis (PP). PP is a severe mental illness which begins suddenly following childbirth. Over 1,400 women experience PP each year in the UK (1 to 2 in every 1,000 mothers). We run an award-winning peer support service, develop patient information, offer training to frontline health professionals, facilitate research and promote greater public awareness of PP and campaign for improved services. One of the organisation’s main aims for this year is to ensure that postpartum psychosis is covered as standard in midwifery training.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
