Winners for Samaritans 2018 Christmas Raffle:

What’s it like to win big?
Here’s what our 2018 winner said when they found out they’d won:
“I have been a listening volunteer at Samaritans for 7 years, taking calls from those who need support, and have always bought tickets for the Samaritans Christmas Raffle. Winning the first prize was a wonderful surprise and I feel very lucky! Thank you!
The great thing about the Christmas Raffle is that each of the branches that choose to sell raffle tickets directly receive the proceeds of those tickets.
This is a brilliant way for branches to raise funds and ensures that we can continue to offer support to our callers, whether talking on the phone, replying to an email or answering a text. As well as my own branch, we have 200 other branches across the UK and ROI answering calls for help, any time of the day or night. Although these are manned by volunteers, the service can only run through donations from the public and so I like to contribute by playing the raffle. Every donation helps.”
