Staff from the maternity team – receptionists, doctors, support workers and midwives – raised £438.87 for The Helen Loewenstein Memorial Trust. They contributed to the buying and selling of cakes, some paying £10 for a small cookie, in order to raise funds for the Trust. The staff all work in the maternity unit where Helen Loewenstein was a midwife for much of her midwifery career. The event was organised by Jennifer Ross and Steve Allen, facilitated by Sarah Daley, all of whom had worked with Helen.
What a brilliant result for a one-day cake sale! The amount raised sufficient to pay half a year’s course fees for a Liberian trainee midwife. Massive thanks to everyone who contributed to the event.
