The Oracle Beacon Goes Green for Reading Samaritans

Tuesday 25th July 2017
The beacon over The Oracle Shopping Centre, Reading has gone green for Samaritans to celebrate the Talk to Us campaign.

The beacon was green from the 21st and will remain green for the remainder of the month, especially today, 24/7, the date of the Samaritans nationwide “Big Listen” and to celebrate the fact that the Samaritans are there for their listeners 24/7.
“It’s fantastic that The Oracle have done this”, said a publicity representative for the Samaritans, “Turning their beacon green demonstrates not only that the Samaritans are always there for their listeners but also shows great community spirit on the part of The Oracle and is an example of local communities pulling together to put suicide prevention on the map.”
This is part of a nationwide campaign to raise awareness for the Samaritans and several other monuments and attractions have gone green nationwide.
