Staff at Waitrose supermarket in Stroud have very generously donated £333 to our Gloucester & District branch.
Branch Director, Susan, and Outreach team member, Gavin, met Waitrose's Cathy to receive the cheque. The money will be put to good use by the Outreach team and their future work with the Stroud community. We all thank you so much!
Throughout the past year, we have been keeping in touch with organisations in our local communities, trying to ensure that information about Samaritans services has continued to be available, and that people are aware of how to reach our listening volunteers. We have, in particular, made good links with the local colleges and 6th form schools , staff and students, and with 999 key worker staff, foodbanks and many men's groups. However, as the Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease over the coming months, the Outreach team plans to once more to be visible and very active outside. We look forward to seeing you again soon in the Stroud area.
