Teaming up with BT for Samaritans' 60th birthday

On 2 November 2013 Samaritans celebrates 60 years since it first opened its doors (and started answering the phone!).

To mark the occasion, we have teamed up with BT who have generously agreed to give us advertising space in 20 of their phone boxes to help raise awareness of our birthday and of our service.

Samaritans advertising will take up one full side of the telephone kiosk (see design below).

We wanted to use a wide geographical spread of phone boxes, and have selected the following locations:

  • Kingston
  • Maidstone
  • Brighton
  • Exeter
  • Cardiff
  • Birmingham
  • Bury St Edmunds
  • Blackpool
  • Nottingham
  • Leeds
  • Sunderland
  • Edinburgh
  • Belfast
  • Reading
  • Truro
  • Glasgow
  • Whitehaven
  • Manchester
  • Bournemouth
  • Lincoln


If you would like to do something to mark the birthday, or hold your own celebratory event, we will give you as much support as we can to help you organise this. Please contact Claire Duncan in the Press Team:
