The Samaritans May 22nd

Having had a day off yesterday, today we started with a visit to The Samaritans in Portsmouth.

As The Samaritans is my main Charity for this Mayoral year, it was felt that an early visit to see how the team works would be invaluable.

Elaine & I were shown round the facility and it was explained exactly how they respond to the many calls that they receive day and night. We were also told how they recruit volunteers and how the training is conducted.

We were very impressed with the dedication that is shown by all of the volunteers for what can be a very demanding vocation.
