IoW Samaritans Emergency Appeal

Why we need your help

The COVID-19 crisis affects us all. At Samaritans we're at the end of the phone 24 hours a day to support people with emotional difficulties and suicidal feelings. But there's a problem.

As the virus spreads, inevitably more and more of our volunteers are self-isolating or becoming ill. At the same time, IoW Samaritans Shop has been closed, and our annual Solent Swim, scheduled for Sunday, 16th August 2020, is under threat.

These are the only sources of money we have to keep our branch going through the crisis - which costs in the region of £100 per day.

So we have no income, fewer volunteers and more and more callers. It's called "a perfect storm".

Please help us ride out this storm, and continue to support our callers - many of whom come from the most disadvantaged sectors of society.
Whatever you're able to give will be greatly appreciated, by the Isle of Wight branch, by  our volunteers, and most important of all, by our callers. We have to keep supporting them - please help us fulfil our obligations.
£5 will pay the cost of a much-needed phone call. £15 pays for the cost of a single volunteer on a 3-hour shift. And £25 keeps our branch open and operating for 6 hours. Please give what you can. 
Thank you so much!
