If you are shopping at New Mersey Shopping Venue on Saturday 23rd June, be sure to keep an eye out for the Samaritans of Liverpool and Merseyside. The team will be collecting on site to raise some vital much needed funds for our charity.
The team are keen to raise awareness of the excellent Samaritan service that's currently available to all members of the public. And at a time when lots of people are struggling with their mental health, it is important to be aware that anyone can access the charity 24 hours a day free of charge. All of the volunteers who fundraise on the day are Listening Volunteers at the Liverpool Branch and are trained in offering emotional support to anyone who needs it.
The team will also use the fundraising opportunity to recruit volunteers across a whole range of functions in the Branch, not just Listening Volunteers. So if you have ever thought about helping the Samaritans, be sure to come along and speak with a member of the team.
