North London Samaritans – carol-singing to raise funds
Carol-singing to raise funds
Although we have no paid staff, it still costs North London Samaritans about £500 per week to continue to provide emotional support to those who need it. This goes on boring things like rent, gas bills and loo-rolls as well as our telephone bills and publicity materials. Although we do apply to some trusts and funds, most of this money comes from individual support.

Sometimes this comes from supermarket customers, people dropping coins in a tin or sending us a cheque, but our volunteers also get involved in fun activities like cake sales, running a half-marathon, doing a bungee jump or carol-singing at Christmas. Some generous people also set up a standing order with their bank to pay a small amount each month. A standing order of £5.00 a month provides us with welcome steady income.

We are currently raising funds to replace our dilapidated old training hall with a purpose built community hall, call centre and office. This will save us from paying rent and room hire and add a much needed community resource. 

Would you like to help us continue to support people in distress or despair?

Could you help us to be there for someone living near you who is feeling suicidal?
