A huge thank you to everyone who responded to our urgent appeal to provide medical treatment for Samuel.

Samuel was diagnosed with a severe skin infection. He visited the hospital three times and was prescribed antibiotic tablets and creams, and some pain relief. Whilst it will take a little longer for the infection to completely clear, he is definitely going in the right direction.

This treatment was mainly funded by one-off donations from our wonderful supporters who rose to the challenge of helping young Samuel. Chaffinch can do nothing at all without its supporters and we are grateful to every single one of them, whether they donate a little or a lot or simply spread the word.

Thanks!

Thanks!
