Charity: Samaritans

Since setting up this business, I have supported various charities and will continue to do so, however during the pandemic and the following months especially, I wanted to decide on a charity the business itself could support and I have decided on Samaritans. I used to volunteer for Samaritans and I also believe they have provided a great support for those in need during these past few months. In order to raise money for Samaritans, I will be offering my monthly silent half day retreats for £5 donation which will then be donated onwards. Retreats can be booked on the website and they will be once a month on a Sunday from 9am-12.
