Annie Gresham, who would have been 27 on the 21st July 2019, was supported by First Steps ED for several years before sadly passing away in 2017. Alongside the support provided to her through NHS services, Annie accessed our counselling, online email befriending and supported self-help groups.

First Steps ED was a charity very close to her heart; a place that she was able to open up to other individuals experiencing similar difficulties.  

Annie’s Mum Kim, and her friend Joy, took up running in their late 50’s and this was something Annie was very proud of.

In memory of Annie, and to thank First Steps ED for their dedicated compassion and support throughout Annie’s journey, Kim, Joy and 5 other members of Scunthorpe’s Waifs and Strays running group completed the Grimsby 10km run on 21st July 2019 – what would have been Annie’s 27th birthday.

They raised a huge £1070 and we would like to thank them for their hard work and kind donation.
