DONCASTER SAMARITANS EMERGENCY APPEAL
Doncaster Samaritans is appealing for donations from local residents to help ensure its volunteers can continue to support people struggling to cope during this crucial time.
Following Government’s confirmation that Samaritans volunteers are critical to supporting vulnerable people, Doncaster Samaritans is making every effort to ensure that they are able to provide emotional support to anyone in crisis.
Volunteers that are able to carry out shifts at Doncaster branch are following strict guidelines on hygiene standards and social distancing. The situation will be continually monitored to ensure that volunteer safety is prioritised.
Now more than ever, we need the public’s continued support. Due to the cancellation of our upcoming fundraising events we are facing a significant loss of funding, so we are calling on Doncaster District residents to help us ensure that we continue to be here for anyone who needs support.
A donation as little as £5.00 will help volunteers to answer a call for help from someone struggling to cope and be there when people need support the most.
To make a donation and find out other ways you can support Doncaster Samaritans please visit www.virginmoneygiving or click the link on the home page. You can also help with donations of sanitizer, wipes, toilet rolls, tea, coffee and snacks for our volunteers whilst on shift.
Those worried about their own mental health or someone else during the coronavirus outbreak can find some useful online resources and advice on the Samaritans website.
