Vital support by the Samaritans

ON BEHALF of Horsham and Crawley Samaritans, I would like to thank those that nominated us for the Volunteer Group award at the recent Community Awards organised by the County Times and Horsham District Council. Our thanks also go to Guy Leonard and Co for sponsoring our award. It is very heartening to be recognised in this way.

All Samaritans are volunteers who give many hours of their time every month to provide round the clock confidential, emotional support to those in our community who need us. Last year our branch took 14,000 calls and answered 650 emails in addition to seeing callers who visit us in person at our branch in Denne Road. We look forward to continuing to serve the community and we can be contacted on 01403 276276 day and night.
