More Bridlington Samaritans Needed

More Bridlington Samaritans Needed

Published by Karen Liu at 6:01am 8th January 2020.

Bridlington Samaritans are looking for more volunteers.

The role involves answering any calls, listening, having a chat and giving support.

The charity particularly needs people to work during the night.

Sandra Harper, Director at Bridlington Samaritans, said:

"Volunteers have jobs, they have roles outside of Samaritans, families etc; and so it's difficult for volunteers to work at night times.

Night times tend to be the time when we're the busiest because there aren't the other services available.

I think the need for Samaritans is increasing year-on-year.

People needs increase and there's more things that seem to worry people; money is one of the main things, housing and all these sort of areas increase the need for Samaritans."

They also need volunteers to help out at its charity shop on Queen Street.

Anyone interested in becoming a listening volunteer or a support volunteer, can call or text 07828 575274 or visit: https://volunteer.samaritans.org/volunteer
