Do you have what it takes to become a Samaritan?

Banbury & District Samaritans are holding an information evening at their branch at 33 Albert Street on Thursday, April 28, from 7pm to 9pm.

Samaritans volunteers provide a listening ear round the clock so people in distress can telephone someone in confidence day or night.

The Banbury branch covers the Buckingham, Brackley, Towcester and Bicester areas.

Karen, an office manager who volunteers at the branch, said: “Finding out about volunteering with Samaritans is one of the best things I’ve done.

“For me, it’s been an opportunity for personal development too.

“I feel I get just as much out of my volunteering with Samaritans as I put in.”
