The recent national launch of The Samaritans “Talk to Us“ campaign coincided with the 40th Anniversary of the local branch here in the North West, and was supported by visiting celebrities, actress Courtney Cox and her fiance John Mc Daid from band Snow Patrol.
The couple said they were delighted to be involved with the campaign and congratulated all the volunteers both past and present for providing this valuable service for the past 40 years to both the local community and further afield.
Lindsay, chairperson of the branch, said: “The aim of this year’s campaign is simply to let people know that we are here round the clock, providing a safe space for them to talk and be themselves, without fear of being judged.”
Samaritans provide confidential, emotional support.
