    Samantha is fundraising to support her trip to Hong Kong to present at her first international conference and to raise funds for the charity Cancer and Leukemia in Children (CLiC) to give children with cancer the opportunities to live their lives the way they deserve to. CLiC is a registered charity number 1107328 and registered in Scotland (SC039857). For more details, visit their website:

    The Lydney Training Band are hosting a fundraising concert with guest soloist Thomas Dunne on euphonium, in collaboration with Samantha. The concert will take place on 21st April 2018 at the Lydney Town Hall, High Street, Lydney, GL15 5DY. The Facebook event is here: If you would like to buy ticket/s then please contact Samantha on 07901 622 122 or

    As an early career researcher and aspiring academic, Samantha's attendance at the conference will be a lifetime opportunity to learn more about her area of interest, network with specialists in the field. It will contribute to a new project she is involved in that is applying figurative message research to advertising campaigns with Professor Jeannette Littlemore and a Birmingham advertising agency, Big Cat.

    All donations will help Samantha, the Lydney Town Band organisation, and children with cancer. Thank you!
