Story

In the summer of 2007 my dad committed suicide and to say that it had a massive impact on my life would be an understatement. So 8 and half years later I have given up a job in the City, trained to be a yoga teacher and have a totally different outlook. 

My whole life I have been aware of the Samaritans and I think the work it does is invaluable. If it can stop one person from deciding to take their own life they have also saved a whole family. Please help me support this great charity and give as much as you can. x
