Thanks to your donations, we’re able to fund the annual Eva Monynihan Prize for Nursing Students at the University of Leeds.

The prize recognises outstanding performance and commitment and is awarded to a final year nursing student. This year, Children’s Nursing student Tia Hau won the award and received a £500 cash prize:

“For the past three years, I have studied Children’s Nursing at the University of Leeds, during which I had many placements at Leeds Children’s Hospital. Whilst at university, I was a committee member for Nursing Society and last summer we organised a ball and managed to donate most of our profits to Leeds Hospitals Charity; we all felt that it was important to give back and support this charity as we have seen first hand all the amazing things they do.

“Since finishing University, I have landed a job in Paediatric Intensive Care at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. I plan to continue developing my knowledge in paediatric intensive care and progress my career in this field… but I will definitely stay open minded as who knows what doors may open in the future!

“I’d like to thank the Children’s Nursing team at University of Leeds for kindly nominating me to receive this award and Leeds Hospitals Charity for funding it!”

Well done, Tia!
