Samaritans: The One About Lisa’s Story





"Everyone knows Samaritans is there for people in distress and despair, whenever they need to talk."

Samaritans is the only charity offering this vital service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. And, to provide this lifeline this charity relies almost entirely on voluntary funds from people just like you and I...




















It takes a lot of courage to call Samaritans... The fundraising film ‘Lisa’s Story’ shows that when someone finally makes that call, somebody must be there to answer.


Yep, this post is another charity related one...

But, after reading more about "Lisa's Story" and watching the video, you'll understand why Samaritans is one of the Top Ten British charities in my books.

Don't worry, I'm not going to preach or go heavy on you guys...
I'll just include an extract from the Samaritans' website about "Lisa's Story" instead:

"Samaritans' new fundraising TV campaign features a character called Lisa, a young woman who has experienced a lifetime of abuse and is extremely distressed, but finds the strength to phone Samaritans. The advert closes with Lisa looking more positive, having made the call to Samaritans, emphasising that she has taken an important first step in rebuilding her life..."


Even if you are not able to donate to this charity, do still read about it and watch the video...

One day, someone you know might need to make "the call".
Being able to let them know about Samaritans and how to contact them could save their life.


Many thanks in advance for your time.
