The group runs two training groups per year, in March and October. Information sessions are on November 15 and December 9. Call 07473 581379.

Mr Adams said: “So many people have it in them to be a Samaritans’ volunteer - just to be there when someone in need reaches out. It can change the volunteer’s life, too - from the satisfaction of helping someone through a tough time, to learning new skills or meeting like-minded colleagues, you get a lot back.”
