Buckets of joy spread by all

Following last year's fundraising days, the Samaritans asked if we'd be able to lend a hand again this year for their annual collection days. YES, of course, we'd love to help again!

Charlotte and I signed up for our shifts on the fancy Doodle Poll and turned up to Waterstones to collect donations from shoppers. Paired up with a Sam volunteer, we had brilliant company throughout and before we knew it, it was time to hand over to the next shift. Shoppers seemed well ans truly in the spirit of giving so hopefully it will have helped to raise lots of very much needed funds.

Thank you to the Sams for the great collection conversations!
