How your money helps
Every year, Samaritans 18,750 volunteers support 5 million calls from people across the UK who are struggling to cope.
We're here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide hope and comfort. We need £10 million every year, just to keep our telephone lines open, 96 per cent of this comes from voluntary donations.
We're asking for everyone who takes part to raise just £3. This will help Samaritans answer desperate calls for help.
By supporting Feel Good Friday, you'll help us continue to provide our life-saving service for the millions of cries for help we receive each year.
- £3.88 pays for one call to be answered by a volunteer
- £100 allows us to recruit 5 new volunteers
- £1,000 keeps the service running for 12 hours
