Winning bid at
the Proper Good
Community Soup event!

May 2023

It was a privilege to be part of Chapati‘n’Change at Heaton Norris Community Centre Pavilion, organised by Simone Callaghan from

Proper Good at Sector 3 - Stockport.

We got to network with a whole room of inspirational people, including the 2 other

fabulous women who also pitched;

Hannah Hodgson and May Fairweather.

The other 2 pitches were amazing and it’s really humbling to have so many people backing my idea.

 

We are so excited to use this funding to help parents struggling with post natal anxiety and depression in Stockport through Creative Self Care.

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us!
