Celebrity couple support Derry Samaritans

Tuesday 5th August 2014

The recent national launch of Samaritans' " Talk to Us " campaign coincided with the 40th Anniversary of the local Derry branch and was supported by visiting celebrities, actress Courteney cox and her fiance John Mc Daid from band Snow Patrol.

The couple said they were delighted to be involved with the campaign and congratulated all volunteers past and present, for providing this valuable service for the past 40 years to both the local community and further afield.

Lindsay, chairperson of the Derry branch, said " The aim of this year's campaign was to simply let people know that we are here round the clock, providing a safe space for them to talk and be themselves, without fear of being judged."
