Giving My All for Gidget

Sunday 26th May
Hello Everyone,

I’m participating in the 2024 City2Surf on Sunday 11th August.

Gidget Foundation is very dear to my heart and I want to raise money and awareness for the incredibly important work they do for new mothers that need support during the post-natal phase.

Becoming a new Mum was the most life changing thing I have ever experienced, and one I never expected to find so difficult mentally and emotionally. I battled post-natal anxiety during the first year of Skye’s life, which was also exacerbated by COVID lockdowns. Without my Gidget counselling sessions (via Zoom) during that time, I would have been so lost.

I’m doing City2Surf to give back to the foundation that gave me the support I needed when I was at some of my lowest times after giving birth.

I know there are so many other Mothers that would benefit from Gidget’s Services, and by generously donating you can help make that happen!

Thank you to my Sponsors
