    Article posted today on the Yorkshire Post

    Due to the recent and sudden passing of Sam. All donations will be put towards the repatriation of his body from the US and his funeral.

    He was a “real life Duracell bunny” with a seemingly endless supply of energy and love. A son, grandson, brother, uncle, partner and friend, he will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him.

    We are putting the target as £17,000 as we do not yet know the actual cost.

    Sam was a true performer, and any extra money raised will be donated to a UK charity supporting youth theatre, a cause close to Sam’s heart.

    Amy, Sam’s sister, is also looking at setting up a foundation in Sam’s name to support people who find themselves in a similar position to him and need extra support.

    All donations are greatly appreciated.

      A message from Sam’s mum: His life was a blessing to me and a life of such a sensitive caring man needs to be celebrated. I would love you to join us as a family to share your memories, stories, laughs and moments of happiness you had with Sam. Try and leave the sadness of all this at your door and bring the laughs with you, he would like nothing better. The service will be at York Minster On Thursday 27th October at 2pm and of course no black please just wear the brightest colour you can ! I miss you so much my darling Sam xxx

      We are truly grateful for every single donation. It has been a humbling experience reading messages of support from those who knew Sam and from those who have heard his story. The money will be transferred directly to Angie, Sam’s mother, so she can travel to America with Zoe and Sam’s best friend to attend the cremation of his remains and return these home. Once back home a celebration of his life will be arranged. All the remaining funds will be donated to appropriate charities. We thank you all again for your support at this difficult time.
