A registered veterinary nurse has told of her pride at being awarded a £1,000 bursary to help advance her knowledge and gain a further qualification.

Helen Molyneux has been awarded a £1,000 bursary from The Kennel Club Charitable Trust.

Helen Molyneux, head nurse at the CVS-owned Rees Veterinary Centre, in Warrington, Cheshire, will put The Kennel Club Charitable Trust bursary towards tuition fees for an Advanced Nursing Diploma.

She said: “I’m proud to have been awarded the bursary as only three are given each year.

“It will be of great practical help, enabling me to concentrate on my studies without worrying about fees. Reading the references from my colleagues at Rees Veterinary Centre and within CVS made me very proud and I now want to pass the diploma for them as much as for me.”

Mrs Molyneaux began her career in veterinary nursing in 2001 and has a particular interest in anaesthesia and critical care. She gained her Certificate in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care in 2013. She is also a qualified pet health counsellor and a clinical coach.

Mike Townsend, chairman of The Kennel Club Charitable Trust, said it had funded veterinary nursing bursaries since 1987 to help defray the costs associated with degree and diploma training.

He said: “Congratulations to Helen and CVS on being awarded this bursary. We wish her all the best with her further studies.”
