The Big Listen
On 24 July, the Samaritans are hosting a 24-hour event called The Big Listen. They have chosen the 24th of July (24/7) to highlight the fact that they are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round, for anyone who is struggling to cope. Last year they answered over 5 million calls. But they need your help to raise the vital funds they need to keep going.
How you can help
On the day, there are loads of ways that you can get involved. There will be running competitions for supporters, and they will be telling the story of how the incredible volunteers help people across the UK and Ireland. Keep an eye out for some famous faces who’ll be championing our campaign too!
The countdown’s begun
The Big Listen will launch at midday on 24 July and run for 24 hours. As we count down to the big day, they’ll be sharing all of the different ways you can support them, from listening to the feelgood Spotify playlist to taking on a fundraising challenge, so keep an eye on the website, on Facebook, and Instagram, or join in the conversation on Twitter with #TheBigListen
