It costs around £40,000 a year to run our branch, and we rely entirely on donations from the public, businesses and other organisations.
There are lots of ways to donate or fundraise, and any amount will help us to keep the branch running and answer more calls for support.
Regular or one-off giving
Regular donations help us to better plan our budgets, but any one-off donation is also much appreciated.

Donate When You Shop Online
Visit your favourite retailers through the easyfundraising website and then shop as normal. Once you’ve made your purchase, the retailer will then make a small donation to us to say “thank you”.
And we have a Virgin MoneyGiving site where you can set up regular giving, or make a larger one-off donation.
If you’re thinking of running a marathon, sky-diving, climbing a mountain, swimming across a lake or any other challenge, you can raise sponsorship money on our behalf simply by setting up an online giving site, for example through virginmoneygiving.com (but there are plenty of other providers too).
Or maybe you’re more the arty type, so if you’ve got cakes or crafts to sell would you consider donating some of the proceeds to a good cause such as Derby Samaritans?
Whatever’s your thing – get in touch via email to [email protected] and we’ll help you to publicise it.
Samaritans of Derby and District, a charity registered in England (1174130). Samaritans of Derby and District is a recognised branch of Samaritans.
