Default Samaritans Cycle Celebrates 50 Years Of The Chiltern Branch ofSamaritans!!

Every 15 minutes, night and day, 365 days a year, one of Chiltern
Samaritans 100+ trained volunteers starts a dialogue with someone who is
experiencing emotional distress. They speak to them on the phone, meet
them at their front door in Amersham, respond to their emails or texts.
Whether they’re scared, isolated or miserable or even planning to take
their lives, they support them. As you can imagine it’s sometimes a very
tough conversation.

It costs them about £30000 to keep this valuable service going. So, they
were delighted when High Wycombe Cycling Club agreed to help them run
this cycling event and raise some much needed funds. In July 2017, their
first event was a terrific success. They attracted 420 cyclists and made
£15,000 for Samaritans. Though that was an important measure of the
success the real measure was the feedback from participants.
