Banbury mum dies after raising £40,000 for sons

A terminally ill Banbury mum has died, after raising £40,000 to secure her sons' future

Sam Kyme had been battling motor neurone disease.

Friends and family started a fundraising page to cover the cost of allowing her sons to go and live with her sister in Australia.

A statement from friends said,"It is with huge sadness that we have to tell you our beautiful Sam passed away this morning (Thursday). She went peacefully with her family around her.

"The family are deeply saddened but also relieved that she is no longer suffering. Thank you to everyone for the incredible generosity and support during these difficult and devastating months.

"We know that Sam would like everyone to celebrate her life by raising a glass to her and her family at this festive time. Sam will always be dancing in the sky with a drink in her hand. We love you Sam."
