We are delighted to support our local branch of The Samaritans. They are on hand 24/7 to answer telephone calls and emails to support those who need someone to talk to and someone to listen to them.
Usually at Christmas Wolverhampton Samaritans have a group of singers who sing at the train station, in Asda and various other locations around the city to raise awareness for Samaritans and to fundraise for the branch. This year, as with the last, things are different and due to the pandemic they have thought outside the box and so have come up with an idea to help raise awareness for not only the local branch, but Samaritans across the country, through something the UK loves most….a good Christmas song!
Christmas can be a challenging time for peoplewho are struggling. The Samarians want to let people know they won’t be alone, even at Christmas. So together with a local recording studio, Inclusic, they have written a song using the thoughts, feelings and words of our branch volunteers. The Song is called ‘At Christmas.’ It’s just been released as a single that is available for download on iTunes, Amazon Spotify etc
The release week has got off to a great start off strong with the song being played on WCR radio and BBC West Midlands and it looks like being a winner!!
Well done Wolverhampton Samaritans.. a great song and a great idea!!
