Fascinated to visit Swindon & District Samaritans this week, and to learn about all they do to help anyone, anywhere, who needs a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen. Their team of dedicated volunteers have been working from their offices in Curtis Street Swindon for over a decade and must have helped thousands of callers in that time - in recognition of which I was delighted to present Director Susie Higgs (pictured) with a High Sheriff's Award for services to the community.
