£250 – a huge tougher mudder thank you to Will Scott

A massive thank you to Will Scott for helping us to raise funds to keep going by running the tougher mudder in June .  His wife is one of the lovely mums who uses the Longstone (soon to become Sighthill group).  Here’s what she had to say:

“I have been attending the group at Longstone which has allowed me to be in touch with other mum’s going through similar experiences. I also found my counsellor through them and working with her has been invaluable for me in recovering from ante- and post-natal depression. I feel so lucky to have found these amazing women – and luckily I know have an opportunity to give something back so they can continue providing support that is absolutely invaluable. ”

We are so grateful to many of our mums and their partners who have been recently helping us raise funds.  In each year we need about £3500 to keep Juno running.  We provide weekly drop in peer support groups, access to subsidised counselling and we offer an outreach service.  Our funds go directly to: hall rental (including the very important teas/coffees/biscuits), printing of leaflets and other materials, training, subsidising counselling and other expenses.  The more help we can get with fundraising means the more time we can focus on running Juno.  If you’d like to help, please contact us.


LOCAL HEROS – we did it!

We were thrilled to be recently nominated and then win the Edinburgh Evening News Local Hero award.  It was such an honour to have been invited and such a huge recognition for the work we have done locally in Edinburgh.  Getting this award has made us even more excited about all the things we still want to do.  We’ve got a lot coming up over the next year and we want to get on the doorstep of every single mum across the Lothians.

Thank you Edinburgh Evening news and Central Taxis for that sponsoring our award.

Thank you to every single mum that comes along to our group and to ALL our volunteers past and present for all your hard work and dedication.

Lots of love, the Juno Team xxx

£360 – A MASSIVE THANK YOU to Claire Marsland

We are thrilled that Claire Marsland helped us by completing 5k at the Edinburgh Marathon Festival on 28th May – she raised a whopping £360.  We are so grateful to Claire for doing this.  These funds help us to cover our hall rentals, advertising costs, counselling and training of our volunteers.  We receive no funding whatsoever except through donations such as this.

If you feel you could help us – then please do so by email our fundraising team.
