Walkers boost Samaritan coffers
PUBLISHED: 11:51 05 August 2012
AROUND 30 people tackled an eight-mile walk to help raise £550 for North Somerset’s Samaritans.
The hardy bunch walked from Sandford to Winscombe and back along the Strawberry Line to help meet the running costs of the helpline charity’s Weston branch.
A spokesman said: “It takes £24,000 to run the Samaritan centre in Weston each year and all funds are raised by voluntary contribution such as this walk.
“Many thanks to all those who took part.”
