What would I do as a Friend of Swindon Samaritans?
There are all sorts of things to get involved with. Currently we are looking at organising and running online events. In the near future we are hoping to get back to in person events so lots of planning is needed! Events you will be involved in include tin rattles, attending community events, designing posters and leaflets.
What experience do I need?
