Samaritans WSM Walking Out of Darkness
Why we need your help
Please support our participation in aid of the Samaritans of Weston-s-Mare and N. Somerset by sponsoring our walkers in the Walking Out of Darkness event in Weston Super Mare on Saturday 16th September. The event is an opportunity for everyone to walk together in support and unity for individuals and families suffering from Mental Health Difficulties and those who have lost loved ones by suicide.
Walking Out Of Darkness events over the last 3 years have inspired and motivated people, businesses, charities and services across the country to unite in ending the stigma surrounding Mental Illness by increasing Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention.
The event's 10 mile walk and Mental Health Festival in Weston Super Mare, offers a platform for all during ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ 2017 when Charities, Businesses, Organisations and Service across the UK seek to highlight how together, we can all make a difference by acknowledging these, once unuttered, topics and assist in increasing communication, education by raising awareness around mental health and suicide prevention.
It takes £20-30K to keep our Samaritans' centre running in Weston-super-Mare and we need yout support to keep our telephones operating.
The Samaritan vision is for a society in which fewer people die by suicide, people are able to explore their feelings and are able to acknowledge and respect the feelings of others. Callers do not have to be suicidal to call Samaritans; indeed they aim to talk to people in distress to help them to make positives choices for themselves.
Thank you in anticipation of your donations.
