My story

Before you made a decision to donate or not, or even how much, please read on...

I have been proud to support various charities over the last 5 years. However, this one is special and any support you provide will have a massive impact to people's lives!

So on Saturday 17th August I have decided to do a SkyDive to raise money for this fantastic charity, I've never done one before, this is a big challenge for me but absolutely worth it to support the great volunteers supporting vulnerable people across the UK.

Please be as generous as you can!

Many Thanks,

Mike

It is the 3.00am, you have not slept because you have been worrying all night, your drained, your scared, and you do not want to worry your family. But then you remember, there are people out there who can support you through the night???????????..

Walsall and District Samaritans provide emotional support for people who find themselves struggling with a variety of issues. Our team of unpaid volunteers, provide telephone, email and text support throughout the night. During the day we also provide face to face support and outreach support to schools, prisons and at other locations such as Walsall Railway Station.

Our aim is to reduce death by suicide, but at a time when more and more people are struggling to cope, (with mental health, drug, alcohol, gambling addictions and various emotional problems), our service provides essential support at a time of crisis.

We receive no central funding, and we aim to raise £15,000 per year to enable us to keep our branch open seven days a week, through the day and night. The service is manned entirely by volunteers who give their time freely to support the community, and also undertake various fund raising activities to keep the branch open.
