August saw Samaritans in Spain involved in the FundFest 21 held at The Madhouse and Pitch and Pint in Orihuela.  The event was held in aid of 4 charities – Samaritans in Spain; Finca Villamartin; Help at Home; Little Pods – on Sunday 15th Aug, the hottest day of the year so far!

Our volunteers, those of the other charities and the organisers toiled away throughout the day, but the heat kept some people away.  Nonetheless the event was a success and Samaritans in Spain were lucky enough to be presented with €577.45 as our share of the proceeds.  Below are some photos from the day.

The shop continues to do extremely well. Thank you to all of our wonderful shop volunteers who toil away tirelessly, especially in the heat of the summer.

Our call volume has levelled out a little this month but is still higher than average for August. Thank you to all of our listeners for their sterling efforts.

During the week 3rd-10th October (Mental Health Awareness Week) we hope to arrange various events, in various locations, to raise awareness and some much-needed funds.  Please follow us on Facebook to be sure you don’t miss out.
