Compassion UK charity fundraiser Video interview with Sam Smith

Compassion UK charity fundraiser Skelmersdale Football Club.  Interview with Sam Smith Friday 3rd February 2012

This video is Part 5 in the series of interviews, illustrating how faith and religion play a part in the community.  In this instance 'community' is more than just the people of West Lancashire.  This interview is a reminder that we live in a global society and with just the right motivation and will, we can help our neighbours right across the world.

Sam is a physical education instructor at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, West Lancashire, England. He and his wife are committed Christians and belong to the Ormskirk Christian Fellowship based at Edge Hill University.  They have sponsored three children via the Compassion UK charity, which is part of Compassion International.

Now, Sam is trying to raise £4000 to go towards funding a Compassion leadership development programme in Ethiopia.  During the interview, Sam explains the motivation behind his plan to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro and tells us why he is supporting this charitable project.
