MSP Backing Samaritans 24:7

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has lent his backing to the Samaritan’s Campaign: 24:7, taking place on 24 July. The MSP met recently with Samaritans representatives in the Scottish Parliament and appears in the latest Samaritans Scotland brochure.

Commenting on the Awareness Day, Mr Stevenson said:

“It is very important to raise public awareness of the work of Samaritans that goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Hopefully the Awareness Day will be a success with success achieved in raising the Samaritans' profile and letting anyone know that Samaritans' services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to everyone that needs emotional support. Additionally, it is vital that funds are raised to help people in distress. Funds help to maintain the emergency lines, recruit and train new volunteers and run projects with schools, colleges, prisons and industry.

“The Awareness Day will bring together volunteers, supporters, celebrities and donors to raise money and spread the message that however your day or night is going – there is support 24:7.

“For those wishing to contact The Samaritans they should contact: or call 08457 90 90 90.”
