Congratulations to The Brighton Midwifery Society who won BSU 2017 ‘Society of the Year’ award

What a fantastic event it was at the Brighton Student Union (BSU) Awards 2017 ceremony at Komedia Tuesday night.

It was a incredible evening celebrating the very best in student volunteering, student representation and outstanding teaching.  With such great nominations in each category, it must have been a difficult decision to identify only one winner per category.

However, for the School of Health Sciences there were a number of clear winners across our Midwifery Society, as we are pleased to announce and congratulate –

The Brighton Midwifery Society who won ‘Society of the Year’ award!

Brighton Student Union Awards Midwifery Society PhotoThe BSU presented the award to The Brighton Midwifery Society for all their amazing work and their contribution in developing their offering for the benefit of students.

The award is well deserved as for many who know them, know that they have worked incredibly hard to spread their knowledge, and bring about increased awareness and information around pregnancy and birth.

Congratulations to all the BSU nominees and the winners across the University of Brighton! You make us very proud!
