Once I was in a better place I knew I wanted to volunteer to give something back. Samaritans of Farnboroug­h & District? I would recommend anyone to volunteer as it will honestly improve your life. It’s not always easy but you will meet the kindest people and be supported throughout. You could help save lives just by listening and being there for someone. If you feel like you want to help other people, but are not sure how, this will be a perfect opportunit­y for you. daniel.blank@reachplc.com @DanBlank5 Craig Hammond Farnboroug­h & District Name: Organisati­on: Samaritans What’s the most rewarding aspect of being a Samaritans of Farnboroug­h & District volunteer? Farnboroug­h Town/village: The most rewarding part of being a Samaritans’s volunteer is the self discovery you get through the training and helping others. The training alone makes you a better listener and a better person. Fun fact about yourself: I once ran a wine-tasting half marathon dressed as a pirate. ■If you are going through a tough time and need to talk to someone, Samaritans volunteers are available 24/7, 365 days a year.
