Our phone lines have been much busier than usual during 2020 with almost 100% increase in calls, many of these additional calls are Coronavirus related.
Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, our listening volunteers have been working from home since March, thus enabling us to continue the important work we do. Sadly this has meant that we have been unable to conduct Face-to-Face listening at our Drop In Centre.
In the past few years, our charity shop in Punta Prima has put on some amazing Fairs, including Spring, Halloween and Christmas. These have helped to fund the vital service that Samaritans in Spain provide. Sadly this year we were unable to do any of these. Please do make a resolution to come and visit our Shop in 2021. You never know what you will find.
We must take this opportunity to thank our Trustees, Listeners and Shop Volunteers for everything they have done throughout what was an incredibly trying year. We could not continue to function without everything they do, so thank you again and let’s move forward in 2021 on a positive note. In addition, a big thank you to everybody who has supported Samaritans in Spain throughout 2020.
If you need to talk, please call the Samaritans in Spain Freephone number 900 525 100 which is operational 10am-10pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It is confidential and is managed by trained listeners.
