Samaritans 60th anniversary

Borders volunteers were among 300 current and former Scottish Samaritans who celebrated the organisation’s 60th birthday at the Scottish Parliament.

Shirley Barrett, new chair of Borders Samaritans said: “We were delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate with so many fellow Samaritans at the Scottish Parliament. We are very proud to be part of a service which has helped so many people over the last 60 years.”

To mark their diamond year, Samaritans are looking to the next 60 years. Please text ‘SUPPORT’ to 70123* to make a £3 donation.
