    The Bella Moss Foundation (BMF) is delighted to announce the two winners of its prize draw, held during the charity’s appearance at BSAVA Congress in Birmingham earlier this month.

    Up for grabs were a top of the range stethoscope and a bulk supply of antiseptic spray.

    The winners were:
    · Aimee Richardson, an RVN at Hollybank Veterinary Centre in Cheshire – who wins a Littmann stethoscope worth £75, kindly donated to BMF by Ceva Animal Health


    · David Bull, a vet and joint venture partner at Vets4Pets Lincoln South – who wins £120 worth of RenaSan antiseptic solution, kindly donated by CliniTech Medical

    BMF founder Jill Moss said: “We had a brilliant time at congress and are always grateful to be able to talk to the profession about our work and the issues surrounding infection control and antibiotic resistance in practice.

    “It was great to have so many people stop by the stand and take part in our competition, and we hope Aimee and David get some good use out of their prizes!”

    While at congress, the BMF team had the opportunity to talk to hundreds of vets, VNs, students and industry partners about its ongoing work to educate the profession and the public about infection control and responsible use of antibiotics.

    New products from the volunteer-led charity include an animated waiting room video entitled “Beat The Bugs” and a mobile phone app to monitor hygiene standards in veterinary practice.
