We are very excited to announce that Muffins for Midwives 2016 has raised an impressive £8147!!
This means that this year has been the most successful Muffins for Midwives we have ever had! With money still rolling in, we will keep you updated when we know our grand total. We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all of the lovely Muffinistas who hosted an event, for all of the guests who attended and to anyone who kindly donated – without your incredible support we would not be able to train more midwives in Africa.
There were Muffins for Midwives events taking place in Australia and all over the UK this year and we loved seeing and hearing about them including garden tea parties with friends, coffee mornings at work and at home, and delicious looking cake sales! Thank you so much for taking the time to plan such wonderful events, we hope you enjoyed hosting.
It costs just £80 a month to sponsor the training of a midwife, and means we have enough money to recruit two new student midwives! This is wonderful news and we will keep you up to date about the student midwives we recruit and the progress they make over the next year. If you would like to keep up to date with our latest news you can sign up to our email newsletter below – whether you’re an experienced Muffinista, considering hosting your own event in the future or you’re interested in becoming an MW supporter, we would love to stay in touch!
