Kingston upon Thames

Community mission

Plenty of change ticked off Santa’s bucket list

1 GoodGymer made their way 1.0km to help the Samaritans in Kingston upon Thames.

After a spot of inter-community-mission shopping, it was time for the third installment of fundraising for Kingston Samaritans.

Paired with a really lovely helpline Samaritan, we chatted about our Christmas plans, running, GoodGym, how volunteering for the Samaritans helpline works, careers and the fascination that is human behaviour (particularly how one person donating would seem to set a trend for an influx of others to donate). Time really flew by, the bucket gradually became heavier, and before we knew it the next shift volunteers appeared.

Fingers crossed for a healthy fundraising total - and thank you to the Sams for being so warm and friendly.
