2012 was an extra special year for us, as not only did we present our 12th and 13th Sunday for Sammy concerts, but they marked the start of a new era with a new board managing the recently formed Sunday for Sammy Trust. (Charity Number 1144531)

The same friends and colleagues who set up and acted as advisors to the Sammy Johnson Memorial Fund are in charge of the new Trust, chaired by Tim Healy. Fellow Trustees are Sammy's daughter Lynn O'Sullivan with Ray Stubbs, Billy Mitchell, Frank Gibbon, Dave Whittaker and Geoff Wonfor making up the rest of the board. The Trust is administered by Ray Laidlaw who also produces the shows.

Tim Healy said: "The formation of the Sunday for Sammy Trust allows us to bring art, creativity and the administration of funds all under one roof. We're all really looking forward to this year's concerts and are very excited, particularly in the current financial climate, to be able to make such a difference to young people here in the North East."
