Sligo Samaritans seek new listeners

The Sligo branch of The Samaritans are seeking to recruit new volunteers for their essential service.

On average the Sligo centre deals with over 40,000 contacts each year between phone calls, callers to the centre and emails.

They are holding  two open evenings next week, for anyone interested in becoming a Samaritan listener, before selection and training starts.

Both evenings will see a brief presentation on what they do and why they do it and will also include what the training involves and the different types of volunteers in the service.

Those interested should call to the Samaritan's centre at 3 The Mall, Sligo next Tuesday 5th or Thursday 7th September at 7.30pm.
