Samantha's Legacy

Samanthas Legacy Logo
Samantha's Story

Our beautiful Samantha, forever loved, forever missed but never forgotten.
Samantha was a beautiful 18-year-old with a zest for life. Just 68 days after the birth of her son, she had her first night out with friends. However, the evil on the streets that night brought Samantha to her death. Samantha was brutally stabbed to death by a 15-year-old girl that night, and life has never been the same without her.

The design of Samantha's Legacys Logo has a hidden meaning. Samantha's Story is about how the lives of a family can change after such tragic loss and murder. Samantha's Brother Lee also passed away in 2017. Therefore this hidden message is also a tribute and in loving memory of him. Lee & Samantha had an unbreakable bond and Lee suffered terribly without her by his side. They are now together in each others arms.


With much courage, Samantha’s legacy fight for no other person or family to suffer the pain of losing a loved one to knife crime. Samantha's Mum, Sister & Cousin fight tirelessly to prevent serious violent crime in the North East Region (and beyond if needed). Using their own life experiences, they share Samantha's Story with young people in the hope of changing mindsets but ultimately supporting the prevention of knife crime and saving lives.

From being a Front Line War Veteran to becoming a Person Centred counsellor with a BA (HONS) degree. It's fair to say I'm not your stereotypical counsellor, I'm straight talking and passionate about helping people with whatever issue they may be facing, I don't judge people and have had my own challenges to overcome, hence becoming a counsellor. I've worked as a counsellor and as a Support Worker for several charities/companies for several years and have a proven track record.

I've had the honour to work with people of all backgrounds ranging from, War Veterans of all ages struggling with an array of issues to young people (13+) in the care system. Whatever the issue, background, gender or age, I am here for you.

Expressive Gifts

Expressive Gifts Logo

Expressive Gifts is a multi award winning small business established in 2018.


Vicky has won a number of small business awards including "Queen Of Handwriting Products", Jacqueline Gold's "WOW" (Women on Wednesday) and in December 2019 won Theo Paphitis' SBS (Small Business Sunday) award. 


The business vision was to stand out and offer quality products with a difference, and something extra.







Most of the handwriting products come with an optional fully bespoke design service.  This, simply put, means that we are able to print anything of your choice with the handwriting to make the gift extra special and thoughtful.  


Our handwriting work has come from many sources - mostly from cards or letters, but we have worked with writing from some unexpected sources such as a whiteboard, a bedroom wall, a blackboard and even a piece of kitchen roll. We are confident that we can use any piece of handwriting when supplied with a good quality image.  


Children's drawings and photo gifts are also highly sentimental and make perfect gifts for family members and friends.

Holly Berlyn Pointillism Artist

"My name is Holly and I am a pointillism artist based in Dorset, UK.

I have always been into creating and making but 2021 was the beginning of my social media journey and also the beginning of my personal journey discovering what it is I love to do - hand drawing unique pieces of art using only dots!

This technique of using only dots to create a piece of work is known as pointillism and I think that this element is what makes my work so unique!

My favourite subjects to draw are any and all things nature so you'll find a lot of my work involves a lot of insects and flowers!
However, through people requesting whether or not I do pet portraits I was given the oppurtunity to discover another passion - drawing gorgeous animals.

The love I receive and the faith and trust that others put in me is something I will forever be grateful for when it comes to being given the honour of creating a pet portrait for someone xx"
