Alan Knight MBE, legendary past goalkeeper for Pompey football Club, attended our branch to formally switch on the new illuminated Samaritan sign above the entrance, to make it easier to find.
Having already switched on Christmas lights in two areas recently, Alan is now an old hand, and spoke to volunteers attending, of his support of this important service.
Santa attended too, to help reinforce the importance of Samaritans message fopr those who need to talk over Christmas and for him Ho Ho Ho just isn't enough.
After the switching on, Alan cut the Samaritan cake which we all enjoyed with a cup of tea.
