You could be our next big winner, like Jerry!

Jerry is a listening volunteer at his local branch in Coventry, and every year he plays our Christmas Raffle – never actually expecting to win of course! He told us:

When Rachael from Samaritans rang and introduced herself, my first thought was that I’d made a gross error on a recent listening call! I said, ‘Has there been a problem?!’ When she said that I’d won first prize in the Christmas Raffle, I felt completely flabbergasted! I had no idea what the prize money was worth. I thought perhaps £50 or a John Lewis voucher or a hamper, and that it couldn’t be more than £100! My wife Sherry asked what was wrong and I simply burst into tears! As this was the first time I’d ever won anything in a raffle it made me realise that sometimes you can get lucky.

How you could help make a difference by playing our raffle this year

One in three calls to Samaritans on Christmas Day are from people feeling lonely and isolated. Last year our volunteers responded to around 3,500 callers on this day alone

Could help save the lives of two isolated people struggling to cope on Christmas Day.
Could keep our helpline open for 6 minutes for people in crisis over the festive period.
Could go towards training a volunteer, helping to make sure someone is always there to listen over Christmas.
