Next step for Our Sam - Meet our Board of Trustees...
After months of development work, we are delighted to be able to introduce our Board of Trustees. We are now preparing to apply for charity status. For more information on our Board, head to The Team page.
Very exciting announcement for Our Sam
As ‘Our Sam’ heads towards it’s charity status application, I am delighted to make this special announcement.
From the start of my journey with ‘Dancing in the Wings’, my play based on the loss of our baby daughter, Sam, that has led to where we are now, I have had an incredible amount of support from many people. However, one person has overwhelmed me with his level of support for the play, me, and our plans to move forward to develop ‘Our Sam’ as a charity. I couldn’t be happier to be able to announce now that he will continue to walk by our side into the next stage of our journey to raise awareness, understanding and support for anyone affected by baby loss as a result of Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Neonatal Death.
So here it is…once we become a fully formed charity, Neville Southall MBE, phenomenal advocate for mental health issues, and incredible footballing legend, will become Patron for ‘Our Sam’.
I am so grateful for your support and encouragement Nev, and honoured that you want to continue this journey with us, thank you so much!
Positive planning for the future, post Covid-19
Our Sam will shortly be applying for Charity Status and we are currently seeking expressions of interest from individuals who would interested in becoming a Trustee.
We are proud to announce that Sam’s Mum, Philippa Davies, has been named as a Chwarae Teg Womespire 2020 Community Champion finalist for raising awareness of baby loss through theatre. Read the story here
