Aberconwy Midwifery Team
Emma went to meet the Aberconwy Midwifery Team recently who had raised an amazing £1,000 in honour of their friend and colleague Lynne Clayton. Lynne was Team Leader for the Aberconwy & Colwyn Bay team of Midwives, a Mum of 2 twin boys and wife to Dave. Lynne was diagnosed with cancer when her boys were 3 years old and sadly died in 2018. The Aberconwy Midwife team held a fund-raising evening at Conwy Golf Club in memory of Lynne with some great entertainment and a raffle with over 30 prizes, kindly donated by local businesses. A fanatic £2450 was raised, £1,000 being undated ton ourselves and the other monies being given to Lynnes family, who have passed it forward to another local family currently seeing Mum go through cancer treatment. Emma adds “ It was lovely yo go along and meet the midwife team at Llandudno Hospital this past week, they told me all about Lynne and showed me where she worked and the office is still full of photos of their beloved colleague. It goes to show that lots of people are affected when a persons diagnosed with and dies from cancer. With the money they have raised we can support 10 local families where children are affected by their Mum/Dad’s cancer to access our support programmes, from our time out activities too receiving Ozzy our Elephant teddy for cuddles and comfort”.
