HRH Prince Charles meets volunteers at Central London branch

His Royal Highness visited the offices of Central London Samaritans in Soho last Thursday, where he unveiled a portrait of the charity’s founder Prebendary Dr Chad Varah CH CBE, and met volunteers, staff and donors.

This, alongside the reception Prince Charles hosted at Clarence House, was to launch the celebrations marking 60 years since the charity received its first call in November 1953.
