Samantha Herbert is fundraising for CYHU!

Samantha Herbert is fundraising for Can You Hear Us? C.I.C in the Donington Park Half Marathon on Sunday 15th November 2015! Here’s what she had to say about taking on this challenge in aid of our growing community:

The half marathon will be held at Donington Park on 11th November. This is where CYHU fits in as I would love to run in aid of CYHU. My partner’s mother, Alison Knight, has NF2, so doing this run is personal to me.

I’ve seen what a great job the organisation does and I would like to play my part.I’ve known Alison for over five years now and she is the first person I have met with NF2. I’ve seen first hand how difficult things can be, from simple tasks to communication. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to run for CYHU.”

As a Community Interest Company (C.I.C), Can You Hear Us? exists to benefit the community rather than the individuals, who own, run or work within it. In this way, donors and users of services provided by a C.I.C will be investing in the on-going sustainability of the organisation.

CYHU sincerely thank contributors for donations of any size and for supporting Sam in her amazing efforts to enhance the UK NF2 community.
