In September 2013, the family of Samantha, who works as a waitress at the Badger Inn, were devastated by the news that her father had incurable cancer.
Although, an incredibly difficult time for all, the Macmillan Centre in Crewe, put Sam's Dad completely at ease and made his last days, until he passed away in February 2015, very comfortable indeed.
In recognition of the care and dedication afforded their father, Sam and her brother Ben, decided to raise money for the amazing Macmillan nurses.
In October 2015, they will both be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, in the hope of raising £10,000 in aid of Macmillan.
CM Vision Events group made a collection towards sponsoring Sam, at the recent Minshull Madness family fun day and raised £200.00 which was presented to her by Liz Davies and Kerry Bannon, in the Badger Inn.
So far, £7,500.00 has been raised in sponsorship. If you would like to sponsor Sam, you can go to her Just Giving webpage by clicking here, or if you are in the Badger Inn, simply drop a few coffers in the Macmillan bucket behind the bar.
We wish Sam and her brother Ben all the very best with achieving her target...
