You can sponsor David’s walk here;

https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/DavidMatthews

This sponsorship will go directly to The Samaritans and will support the training of their marvellous listening volunteers. It will also support keeping branches open and active and able to respond to phone calls, texts, emails, and face to face.

As well as sponsoring David, please consider becoming a listening volunteer. You will be trained and supported to become a life-changing super-hero.

You can also support David with his equipment, food and accommodation.

Below is a Standing Order form for your Bank. You can take this to your Bank and set up a Standing Order which can be stopped at any time. It will automatically stop on the 14th April 2021 when we forecast that David will have completed the Listening Walk. We will be grateful for any amount per month, even £2 per month will make a big difference. The Standing Order form can be downloaded below.

It is different from a Direct Debit in that you can stop the payments and you don’t have to inform us. All of the money raised from Standing Order’s will be used for food, accommodation, equipment and essentials to keep David safe and healthy. Any surplus money left over at the end of the Listening Walk will be placed into the main Samaritans pot. If you want to set it up electronically the Bank Account details are;
