On 28 February the Crocker family’s world was turned upside down after ten year old Samuel was knocked down while on the way to a friend. Later that night Samuel sadly passed away. We can’t even start to imagine what his brave family are going through.
Despite all of the above the family are still thinking of others, wanting to support us by asking for donations under #sparkleforsamuel.
We’ve watched the total climb up and...
