My story

[p]‘Samaritans is a unique charity dedicated to reducing feelings of isolation and disconnection that can lead to suicide. Every six seconds we respond to a call for help. Every year, we answer more than 5 million calls for help by phone, email, SMS, letter or face to face at one of our local branches [/p][p]We're here 24/7, before, during and after a crisis.[/p][p]Together with other Samaritans from across the UK I will be completing [b]a 350 mile bike ride[/b] from London to York (via Colchester, Cambridge, Kings Lynn, Lincoln and Hull) to raise money for this incredible organisation. Every week across the UK 20,000 Samaritans volunteers provide 24/7 listening and spoken word support to people in emotional distress. I do hope you will be able to give financially to support the work that these volunteers do- emotional distress, mental ill health, loneliness and isolation can affect us all. All the monies I raise will go directly towards the Colchester Samaritans branch which is run entirely by volunteers (all my subsistence and accommodation costs are being funded separately by myself).[/p][p]· £5 funds a Samaritan volunteer responding to a call from someone whose life is in crisis. [/p][p]· £10 funds a Samaritan volunteer supporting someone dropping into a branch.[/p][p]· £25 funds a Samaritan volunteer replying to ten emails and texts from people needing support.[/p][p]· £50 helps keep a Samaritans Branch open through the night.[/p][p]· £100 trains an additional Samaritans volunteer.[/p]
