Sam's supporters began donating per goal that he scored throughout the 2013/2014 season. Since the #score4scan campaign kicked off it has snowballed, with a fantastic response from the hockey community, and has even spread to other sports too!

I am backing myself to #score4scan this season for Bloodwise (formerly Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) because of their invaluable research into blood cancers.

Story

I'm Sam, and I score goals. So I decided that there's no better way to celebrate a goal than to donate money to a great cause close to my heart?!

Thanks to social media, friends, teammates, strangers, the hockey family, the cricket community, and even athletics, what started as a £50/goal pledge has grown massively, with people even donating on behalf of goals scored by their favourite football team!

Martin's recurrence of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma during the 2013/2014 season was devastating news having played his way back into what went on to be a league winning Beeston side, scoring and creating many goals in important games early in the campaign.

In April 2014 Martin was admitted to The Christie Hospital where, after a week of intensive chemotherapy, he received donor stem cells from across the pond in America. He is currently in a very long recovery process as his new immune system attempts to settle in.

If you're aged between 16 and 30 and like the ideea of being a life-saver to suffering from blood cancer, check out the work of The Anthony Nolan Trust and register here: http://www.anthonynolan.org/ all you have to do is provide a sample of saliva and you're registered! Simple.

#skill4scan is the most recent initiative we have created. Simply upload a video of yourself performing a skill (regardless of the sport), donate, and nominate. Here's a link to inspire you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2GW3wVvNm0&feature=youtu.be

The original target for this page was £2500, I'm completely gob-smacked and so grateful to anyone who has donated or raised awareness of this page or related charities. Thank you!
