Fundraising for Oxford Samaritans

The branch has to fully cover its annual running costs and we receive no monies from central government. The main sources of income for the Branch are: donations, collections and sponsorship from the London Marathon and other charity events.

Collections, which take place throughout the year at local supermarkets, garden centres, Oxford City centre and other town centres, are not only a great fundraising opportunity for us but are also an important way for us to make contact with local people. They’re an important way of letting people in Oxford know we are there and we frequently have conversations with those who are using, or have used, our services as well as with people thinking of volunteering with us.
