Donate A Day

At any time of the day or night, we’re here and we listen.

Samaritans is open every day throughout Christmas and we’re appealing to businesses and individuals across London to help us be there over the festive period by ‘donating a day’.

Central London Samaritans (CLS) is the only support service in London open round the clock, 365 days a year. Each year we receive over 100,000 calls for help. Our volunteers provide a safe space for people to talk to us about whatever's troubling them. People call us to be heard, to work through their problems and find positive outcomes that work for them.

Many companies close for Christmas to give their staff time off to be with their loved ones. We never close our doors.  A gift of £1250 will keep our Central London branch open for 24 hours.

Christmas can be a particularly isolating time for people. Can you or your company help us be there this December for people struggling to cope?  It’s simple to get involved:

  • Sponsor a day in December for £1250 and receive mentions to our 70k followers.  
  • Employee fundraising – Christmas is the perfect time to engage your staff with fundraising.

Whether it’s a collection or raffle at your Christmas party or a festive bake sale, we’ll provide you with fundraising materials to make it a success. Why not try to fund CLS for a half or full day?
