Samaritans is a well-known charity that has been offering emotional support for more than 60 years but many people are not quite sure how it supports people through difficult times.
If you are someone who would like to know more, and perhaps interested in becoming a listening volunteer or supporting the branch in a practical way, you would be welcome to attend an information event at the local branch.
Samaritans of Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot & Districts is based in Bracknell, off Larges Lane, which is not far from Bracknell & Wokingham College's roundabout site.
The next information dates for 2017
Thursday 30th March
Tuesday 16th May
Monday 12th June
Tuesday 11th July
Tuesday 1st August
They will all be held at the branch.
These events enable people to find out more about what is involved in being a Samaritans' volunteer, with an explanation of what is involved in becoming a listening volunteer or a support volunteer; support volunteers assist the branch in all kinds of ways, from fixing a broken shelf to helping to raise funds to IT and keeping our printer and copier in good working order.
