    Weʼve raised £475 to Save Samantha

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am running the Great Manchester 10k this year for the fourth time.

    This year will be the first time I've raised money for charity, and I've decided to help raise money for Samantha Smith, a local lady who is having to fundraise to save her own life.

    Samantha is one of the bravest people I've ever met, and I first met her when running an article about her for Rochdale Online for her first operation. Sam is only a few years older than me, and yet she has faced numerous health problems. Speaking with her before the first surgery, I remember hanging up the phone before bursting into tears at my desk. Her story touched me on a level that I could identify with, having had two life-changing surgeries when I was 20. That said, mine paled in comparison compared to what Samantha was going through.

    What makes things even more unfair is Samantha is a mother of two young children, and has had to put a promising career on the backburner whilst she fundraises to save her own life. No-one should have to be in the position, and I hate that such a wonderful person is.

    Sam is a lady who has continued to put on a brave face even when she has been dealt bad news after bad news. Even though my newspaper reports on Sam frequently, I want to do more to help her reach a place where she gets some good news for a change.

    Please support me in helping Save Samantha.

      Hi all, thanks for your donations so far. Yesterday was a hot one - I think about 24 degrees in direct sun. Despite this, I made it across the finish (albeit rather dehydrated) in just over 92 minutes. Not my best time by a country mile, but yesterday was about finishing and crossing that finish line for Sam. The donation page is still open, and I hope we can get even closer to £1,000 to help Sam with her treatments. Thank you <3
