We had 26 people attend instead of the 46 expected due to the nasty weather conditions. However, this did not stop us still raising a very healthy £665 for the Centre on the evening! Thanks again Sam for organising and running such a fun evening for us – you did a brilliant job.

One year and 1,000,000 metres of indoor rowing later….
…what a challenge…but for Chris Boys our volunteer gym manager, known to many of us, it is even more amazing as he lives with MS.
At the beginning of the year he wanted to embark on something to raise valuable funds for the Samson Centre. Now, 1,000,000 metres later he has finally rowed across the finishing line. Read More in our latest Newsletter

A great team of helpers made this all possible and we raised a very healthy £2300 for the Centre.
We expect this amount to increase further over the next couple of days when we sell off some of the outstanding goodies at the Centre.
Many thanks again to everyone who supported the Fair in any way, by attending, donating items, buying raffle tickets, volunteering on the day, counting the proceeds and of course a big thank you to our very own Santa, Chris!

These lovely ladies in yellow from Cranleigh Sunflowers running club came in today to present us a cheque for £1200!
They have raised the money over the past year by Pam hosting a coffee morning, Anne running in the Edinburgh Marathon, knitting goodies, to name but a few.
There was an additional £400 on top of the cheque given to us today so these amazing ladies have raised over £1600 for the Centre.
Thank you so much for supporting us.

At the recent award ceremony for the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
A lovely afternoon for our volunteers recently when the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux presented the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service to Gilly and Jim on behalf of all our amazing volunteers.
We could not run the Centre without our very loyal volunteers and it was so lovely to get recognition for them via this very prestigious award.

Thank you so much for enduring the wind and rain on Sunday – a great achievement.
5 out of 6 of our cyclists managed to get their own space in this race via the public ballot.
The public ballot for the 2019 Pru Ride 100 opens on 6 August so if you know anyone who would like to get a place in this great event for next year, do encourage them to enter the public ballot and cycle for us. We also have the option of purchasing one or two spaces in this race.
