"Samaritans resonates with everyone, we’ve all felt at the end of our tether at different times in our lives. The charity does an amazing job of listening to people without judgement and helping if they are struggling."

Elen Lewis, Fundraiser from Twickenham who ran the 2018 London marathon for Samaritans in memory of her friend who took her own life

“My first call was made in 2011 and I have since phoned on several occasions. The volunteers always seem to calm me and put me at ease. My advice to anyone struggling would be that it’s okay to feel how you’re feeling and when you’re ready to talk, Samaritans will be there to listen, any time."

Michael Pugh, Caller from Sheffield
