Brake Meets Samaritans

September 11, 2006 12:05 PM

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington joined Croydon and Sutton Samaritans on Tuesday 5th September for a briefing on their life-saving activities and a short tour of their premises in Croydon.

During his visit Mr Brake, who met Deputy Directors Ann and Beryl and volunteer Baz, learnt that the Croydon and Sutton Samaritans 70 volunteers took around 20,000 calls in 2005 and expect to take more in 2006. The organisation survives thanks to the numerous local fund-raising activities which are required to pay the running costs.

Croydon's Mayor has chosen the Samaritans as one of the Mayor two charities for this year.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
