Central London Samaritans front door

Prince Charles visiting Samaritans branch today

We're honoured to have our Patron, Prince Charles, visiting our Central London branch today.

Prince Charles is visiting our branch after hosting a reception at Clarence House for our supporters last night, kicking off our 60th birthday celebrations.
Prince Charles will get the opportunity to learn about what it takes to be a volunteer, get some insight into the type of calls we receive and the support we give, and tour the branch. Felicity Varah Harding, daughter of our founder Chad Varah, and volunteers at the branch will all meet Prince Charles.
Samaritans Chief Executive, Catherine Johnstone, was also on Daybreak this morning, talking about the rise in calls from people in financial difficulties.
