The Samantha Cup: T20 Charity Cricket Match - 27th Feb 2019

In August 2017, 29 year old Samantha Lewis died as a result of food anaphylaxis whilst on a work trip in Sydney. Sam was the loving partner of Shaun and doting mum of young Tyler - who was just 6 months old at the time. It was Sam’s first trip away since little Tyler was born.                        

In honour of Samantha, the family organised a fundraiser and awareness raising event for Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia in early 2018, and are set to do the same in early 2019.

The Samantha Cup brings family, friends and supporters together to help continue to raise awareness of food allergy, its management and emergency treatment.

The Samantha Cup is to be held on Wednesday 27th February 2019.
