Brew Monday

by Frankie Wythe on 07 January 2019 12:39

‘Blue Monday’ (the third Monday in January) is known as one of the most difficult days of the year.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Join us and help beat the January blues by getting together with your friends, family or colleagues over a brew and raise vital funds for Samaritans

Over the last 64 years, Samaritans volunteers have helped save countless lives, but as demand for our services grows, we need your support now more than ever.

Support Samaritans on Monday 21 January or any day throughout January!

Have a brew. Raise money. Save lives.

Not many of us look forward to January, we’re all spent out and it’s dark by 4. Have you ever wondered how to help your colleagues get over the hump? We’re asking companies to give their team a boost by taking time out to have a chat over a cuppa, whilst raising vital funds for Samaritans.

Want to get your team involved? It's easy, simply sign up below and get your FREE fundraising pack!

About the Samaritans

People make contact with Samaritans for many different reasons.

Here, two previous callers talk about what led to them getting in touch with Samaritans, and how that phone call helped change their life for the better.

Why Samaritans?

We're carefully trained to put aside any personal beliefs. We won't give you a label, a diagnosis or a prescription. And because you're talking to a stranger, you don't have to worry about our feelings.

We’re always here

We’re always open, round the clock, every single day of the year.

We're confidential

We want you to feel safe while talking to us, so you can tell us how you’re really feeling. That’s why we take your confidentiality very seriously

We support everyone

Our name is an historical accident. When the Daily Mirror first found out about our service, they described us as “Good Samaritans”, and the name stuck. You do not have to be religious in any way to volunteer or to get in touch – we talk to people of all faiths and of no faith. Volunteers do not impose their own religious, political, philosophical beliefs on anyone who contacts us.
