Black Cat 107fm, was host once again to another very worthy cause, which received a £1,000 cash grant from St. Neots Round Table.

Round Table chairman, Simon Smith, was on hand to present the cash to “Strong for Samson” – at the same time raising the profile of Action Duchenne. Parents Lynette and Lex Ellison took young Rosie, 8 year old  Leo and Samson, aged 6, to the studios on Friday. Samson has duchenne muscular dystrophy, and his parents have pledged to raise vital funds to help Action Duchenne find a cure and allow Samson and other people with the condition to live a long life.

Breakfast show presenter Ste Greenall welcomed everyone onto his show last Friday morning, and they all took part. Round Tabler Simon Smith said “our group has promised to choose a different St Neots charity or worthy cause every month, and go along to Black Cat 107 to present the money. Strong for Samson is a cause which touched our hearts, and we feel humbled to be able to help them out. “ Ste said “ It was quite chaotic in the studio but both Samson and Leo had great fun, pushing a few buttons on the console.

During the show, Lex persuaded Ste to join him and Leo on the final leg of a fund-raising bike ride. So, keep a lookout on our Facebook page for details of Lex’s #SNO2GMC 24 hour cycle between St Neots and Godmanchester (and back… and back again) this weekend!

We will be joining them on the last leg of the trip from Godmanchester to Market Square and recording some interviews.
