Chester Bus Campaign 2021

In 2019 we answered

  • 19,129 phone calls
  • 7454 emails and texts

We met people in our branch 28 times and reached out to approximately 9320 people outside of the branch.

And we're really proud to be part of the hugely respected national charity Samaritans, who drive our campaigns; the latest being ' Real People, Real Stories'.

Meanwhile, do consider using easyfundraising every time you shop online to generate funds to help run our branch - at no cost at all to you! If you prefer, please use the 'Donate to this branch' link below.

Could you be a listening volunteer to support people when they most need it? Or help us as a fundraising Friend to raise the £85 a day it costs to keep our branch running (some of this comes from kind donations), contribute to the costs of our freecall number and publicise our community activities? Please go to the 'Volunteer at this branch' link below.

Our Outreach Director ([email protected]) would love to hear from you if you would like to -

  • organise an individual or group fundraising event for us
  • arrange a talk about what we do
  • offer us a table or pitch to promote our service at your event
