A Liverpool mum who battled post-natal depression to build her successful children’s entertainment business has credited the support from The Prince’s Trust.
Lucie Campbell praised the charity as they mark the milestone of having helped one million young people across the UK since being founded in 1976.
The 40-year-old from Netherley set up her own business, Jumping Jacks, back in 2009 after turning to The Prince’s Trust for help after facing challenges including leaving home at 16, having a baby at 19 and then suffering from postnatal depression.
She told the ECHO: “Exercise really helped me with postnatal depression and I wanted to help others in a similar situation.
“At the time, I felt lonely. I had trouble sleeping, I would only get about three or four hours a night, I was worried all the time and wondering whether I was doing a good enough job as a mum.
