Martin From Samuel's Charity
The MKFM Lunch Break
Tuesday, May 14th, 2019 - 28 minutes
Oliver is Joined by Martin Our aim over the next 12 months is to continue fundraising but also to secure funding from grants or from businesses so we can have full time staff. This is the only way we can grow and increase the amount tenfold or more per year so we can help the tens of thousands of children who have to deal with serious or terminal conditions each year. From working with parents and hospital staff we know there is much, much more to do. Many, many hospitals are struggling to pay for the day to day running costs and the items we provide are too far down the list to be taken seriously. Yet we know what a difference it makes. Actually, Samuel knew. He taught us how important it is to have something to look forward to, to have some fun and bring a bit of laughter and hope into an otherwise horrible and painful life.
