We have gone through pain and tragic loss in our family, but that is the reason we are here today. Many charities have their origin in a tragedy. Ours has come out of the need to ensure that what happened to Samantha doesn’t happen to others. Sami was a brave girl who wanted to help others above anything; we honour her memory by continuing her work.
Ian Sykes worked tirelessly to honour the memory of his niece Samantha. It is thanks to him that we were able to reach out and help hundreds people at risk. The website he created and maintained for the Foundation has been invaluable in making our message reach the wider community. Today we honour him by keeping his the website he created live for all to see.
