Gemma's Loose Women interview and the press reaction

Well, It’s been a crazy week here off the back of our Manager & Patron, Gemma appearing on Loose Women to talk about Eating Disorders. The conversation is really picking up and we are so proud that we are being heard in support of all those we help at SEED and beyond. There has been so much press off the back of the appearance…education and awareness WILL make a difference to so many. If you didn’t see the interview, you can watch it here…
