In 2017 we welcomed Samuel Turner to team Cerebra as a volunteer and Samuel, his family and friend Angel Jolly have done us proud!

They have held bake sales to raise both money and vital awareness to Cerebra and have even visited HQ so they could meet Cerebra staff.

Always eager to spread the word about Cerebra, Samuel recently spoke about us in an interview with his local radio station, Gateway 97.8 FM. He has also been doing a lot of fundraising in the run up to Christmas, along with Angel.

Samuel is also extremely creative and has made a number of videos to promote how he feels about Cerebra, including the special Christmas one which you can see below.

To date, Samuel has raised a fantastic £425 for Cerebra but has also been a positive representative for us, receiving praise from everyone he meets whilst in the community.

One lady that met Samuel while he was fundraising told us: “Whilst I was having my lunch with my little girl who is 3 I got chatting to a lovely man called Sam and his friend Angel. He interacted with my daughter and was such a pleasure to chat with.

He told me a lot about your charity and told me about why he got involved. He is an absolute treasure to your charity and explained everything about your charity even quoting your website address. This young man needs to be praised as a lovely person and I wanted you to know you are lucky to have him working for your charity!”

We do feel extremely lucky to have him on board. Thank you for everything you have done this year Samuel!

We recently had some very special visitors at Cerebra HQ. Samuel Turner, his family and friend Angel are loyal supporters of Cerebra and have done lots if things to raise money for us including a bake sale at their local fete.

The whole family made the trip from their home in Essex to Cerebra’s Head Office in Carmarthen and spent the day in our fundraising department. They got to know some of our fundraisers and Samuel even took a donation from a supporter!

Samuel now volunteers for Cerebra by distributing our collection boxes in his local area and has even appeared on his local radio station to talk about Cerebra and the work we do.

It was lovely to meet you Samuel.
