John Lewis partnership with Samaritans

Wednesday 11th October 2017
Samaritans Leeds Director Alwyne Greenback and Samaritans National Fundraiser Bob Howe met with the team of John Lewis in Leeds to set up the details for working together early in the new year.


The well-known and respected High Street Store, John Lewis are entering into a partnership with Samaritans to assist and guide in the running of Samaritans shops. For a ten week period in February and March 2018, volunteers from John Lewis will work alongside Samaritans volunteers, advising on retail issues such as visual merchandising, footfall, shop planning and general retail expertise. Going forward this will provide a tool-kit for the 48 Samaritans shops across the nations.



Leeds Branch of Samaritans are delighted to be among the first location to enjoy the benefits of the partnership and are appreciative of the support being offered by enthusiastic staff from the Leeds Flagship store.
