SAMARITANS RUN FUNDRAISING

The Bracknell Samaritans Run is a very popular & fun running event for the local community, open to the whole family. Additionally, it is the key fundraising event for our local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell.

 

Whilst Samaritans is a nationwide charity with 201 branches, many of those, including our Bracknell Samaritans branch, are independent charities in their own right; fully run by volunteers and entirely dependent on charitable donations to keep doing what we do.

 

The Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot & District Samaritans Branch organises the Bracknell Samaritans Run for the local community every year and all profits raised directly benefit our local branch.

 

Did you know:

  • Samaritans of Bracknell, Ascot, Wokingham & districts are fully self-funded and run 100% by volunteers

  • It costs around £25,000 each year to keep operating

  • In 2020 we answered 12,753 calls

  • We listened to our callers for 3837 hours

  • Responded to 2193 emails

  • There are over 125 local people who volunteer at our branch

If every entrant for the 5k or 10k run could fundraise £25, we could raise enough money to keep our local Samaritans branch operating for over 6 months! Could you help raise an additional £25?


You can start fundraising or make a donation via our Enthuse donation webpage.

Why we need your help

Samaritans work together to make sure fewer people die by suicide.

Every six seconds, Samaritans respond to a call for help. No judgement. No pressure. Samaritans are here for anyone who needs someone. Each day around 16 people take their life in the UK and Ireland. In the next hour, Samaritans will receive 600 calls for help.

Samaritans offer a confidential listening service to those having thoughts of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide. Our local Samaritans branch, based in Bracknell, offers support to our callers 365 days per year.
