Lancaster and District Samaritans are looking for new recruits to join their friendly team of volunteers based at Sun Street in the town centre.
The charity offers a totally confidential, non-judgemental service which allows people the chance to open up and talk about whatever is troubling them, however large or small.
Anxiety, isolation, relationship breakdown, bereavement, depression and money worries are among some of the commonest reasons for calling.
Two informal information sessions are being held on: Tuesday, July 8, 5.45-6.45 pm Lancaster Library on Market Square, Lancaster LA1 1HY, upstairs in the Sanctuary,
Tuesday, July 22, 6-7pm in the upstairs meeting room at the Gregson Arts and Community Centre, 33 Moorgate, Lancaster LA1 3PY www.gregson.co.uk.
Anyone who is interested in finding out more is very welcome to come along without obligation - there will be the chance to listen to experienced volunteers and ask questions.
