Royal College of Midwives donates £250 to the Myfanwy McAteer Fund

The Royal College of Midwives’ UK Board for Wales were delighted to donate £250 towards the Myfanwy McAteer Award fund - established in 2011 in memory of the late Myfanwy McAteer, who had been Head of Midwifery Education at the College of Human and Health Sciences at Swansea University; and was a colleague and friend to many who worked, and still work, there.

The prize, worth £50, is awarded annually to an undergraduate midwifery student at the end of their studies, for outstanding commitment, dedication and personal achievement. The prize winner is also presented with a trophy, which is held for a year.

The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) is the UK’s only professional organisation and trade union led by midwives, for midwives.

Helen Rogers, director of the RCM office in Wales, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support this excellent award”.

Head of Midwifery Education at Swansea University, Susanne Darra, said: “The midwifery teaching team at the College of Human and Health Sciences hold fundraising events for the award throughout the year to keep the award alive, so this donation of £250 is most welcome and will help keep the memory of our late colleague alive”.
