Sam has known and supported the work that Real Action has done for a number of years as a volunteer, English Teacher and Teacher Trainer for the charity in the past.

He’s seen first-hand; the difference that the Butterfly School has made to the lives of children. Not only have they gained far greater educational opportunities but he has seen their whole lives change for the better.

Sam says that: Whilst he can no longer help as he has in the past, with teaching or training on an ongoing basis, being a trustee allows him to continue contributing to the charity.

“I’d like Real Action to be here as long as it’s needed and to prosper in the important work it does. If I can help that happen by being a trustee, I’d very much like that”.
