Here we are in early March and so far this year we have assisted nine families from the transplant unit. It’s wonderful to see the money raised put to good use in this way.I think it’s true to say that unless you have been involved with a loved one having an organ transplant it’s very hard to imagine the hardships that people go through.One particular patient, a young man was unable to see his family because they lived miles away from the hospital and the travel costs made this difficult for them. Our assistance made it possible for the young man’s two children to see their dad.
This is what the Sami B Foundation was founded for and thanks to your generosity we are able to make hard times easier.
Mauri Baldwin stood in for Zachary Baldwin at the new Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire. It's a fantastic high tech hospital where he met up with the transplant team. Seen in the picture is Dr Jasvir Parmar and his team with the Sonosite Edge 11 machine. Money raised from our Autumn Ball & Caberet helped to purchase this life saving piece of equipment. We all said a final goodbye to the old hospital and look forward to working with the team in the new high tec Royal Papworth Hospital.
The Autumn Ball & Cabaret
On September 15th 2018, The Sammi B Foundation held their second charity ball, returning to the High Rocks venue in Royal Tunbridge Wells. A three course meal would be followed by cabaret, auction, raffle and live band. Our guests were dressed to impress, and danced in to the early hours. Their generosity and support allowed us to donate £12,000 to Papworth Hospital's transplant department for the purchase of a Sonosite Edge II machine. Papworth Hospital had suggested this machine would help their patients, and so we delivered. The cheque for said purchase was presented to Papworth Hospital's Dr Jasvir Parmar on the evening, and we were grateful once again to have his presence at the event. Dr Parmar had spent time working with our Samantha in her time at Papworth. To those who attended, we say thank you again and hope you had as good a night as we did.
