Reaching out through drinks mats

Saturday 23rd December 2017
Two Banbury pubs are helping us this Christmas to reach out to people who find it difficult to open up about what's getting to them.

The Reindeer and Three Pigeons have kindly replaced their drinks mats with ones displaying contact details for Samaritans. Ben White, assistant manager of The Reindeer said "Samaritans is a fantastic charity and we are delighted to support them in raising awareness and reaching out to everyone who needs someone to talk to at Christmas. This is particularly important for men, who often find it difficult to talk about their feelings and ask for help when they need it most."

We will be running further small campaigns specifically aimed at men, and especially young men, who can find it difficult to open up to friends or family about what's troubling them.
