Hi, my name is Martyn and I'm the Branch Director of the Bristol Branch of Samaritans.
2014 is a special year for us as it is our 50th anniversary. During this time we have been proudly supporting our local community in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area providing 24-hour support.
Last year our 150 volunteers took over 54,000 calls for help which were received at our Bristol Branch which is located in the heart of the City.
We also do talks for community groups, schools and other organisations interested in our work. We have partnerships with many local organisations including local health services, HM Prison Bristol, CRUSE and SARI
We open the branch for an informal information evening on the first Monday every month (including Bank Holidays) from 7.00 - 9.00 pm.
If you've ever considered becoming a volunteer, or wanted to find out about other ways you can help to support our work, then do come along for a chat.
It would be a pleasure to meet you.
PS Our next Information evening is Monday 7th April 2014 @ 7.15pm
