I believe in giving back and there are some very worthy causes that NW8-mums is actively fundraising for. Many of the events I organise are free, but I often ask for donations which go to one of the charities below.
St John’s Hospice is a local hospice that helps people regardless of their financial situation. I have personal friends and neighbours who have been cared for by them. I have raised funds for them on several occasions both privately and through NW8-mums.
One local charity is Little Village Camden and I always suggest that the members of NW8-mums donate items to them.
A cause that I am passionate about is mental health. I suffered from bad perinatal and postnatal depression with both my children. A local charity that I received a lot of support from is Cocoon Family Support. They do amazing and important work.
Tanyel’s Smile is a charity that is very close to my heart. I know her parents and went through the journey of Tanyel’s cancer and subsequent death together with them. What her lovely parents have achieved in Tanyel’s name is beyond inspiring. And, the money received goes to children who really need it.
The Lady Garden Foundation. I have done several funraising events for in the past few years. The work they do is both amazing and important for women all over the world.
