S.A.M.M.I. - Spinal Awareness for Mobility and Movement Independence

Why S.A.M.M.I. was set up.

In 2015, at the age of just 21 years old, Sammi Petersen, from North Ferriby in East Yorkshire, was involved in a non-fault road traffic accident. The accident left her with life threatening and life changing damage to her spinal cord, ultimately causing paralysis from her chest down. But she was determined her condition wouldn't stop her. With incredible bravery, she defied doctors by being able to leave hospital months earlier than they expected.

She and her family, including her brother Dave, who played rugby for the Bradford Bulls and Sheffield Eagles, have now set up S.A.M.M.I., a charity with the sole purpose of raising money, not for her, but to support other people with spinal injuries.

For further information on the S.A.M.M.I Fund or if you would like to organise a fundraising event, visit http://www.sammisfund.co.uk or 'Like' SAMMI Fund on Facebook.

Below is a selection of photos showing media interest in the charity over the last few years, including appearances on ITV News and BBC News.
