We're backing the Samaritans this Christmas and New Year  

6 months ago Wed 22nd Dec 2021

We are supporting the Samaritans this Christmas, who want to pass on the message ‘you don’t have to face it alone’.  

The national charity’s posters are on our Brighton & Hove buses throughout the Christmas period and January, encouraging people to reach out and seek help, if they are struggling.   

Susie McGowan, Director of Samaritans Brighton, Hove and District said: “I am so grateful to Brighton & Hove Buses for helping to get our message out this Christmas and January. We know these are really difficult times for so many people, and I hope people who see these posters go on to ring us. It’s a wonderful way to reach out to our community.”  

Brighton & Hove Buses’ Managing Director Ed Wills said the bus company was privileged to help.  

“We are honoured to highlight the vital work the Samaritans do and to display their posters on our buses. The Samaritans are there to listen without judgement and they do a brilliant job in reassuring people they are not alone and that talking to somebody can help. At Christmas, it’s a message that so many of us need to hear.”
