    Hi
    Yes if you have a little time on your hands, think of others. The SAMARITANS of ABERYSTWYTH are VERY short of listening Volunteers. on the do-it site enter post-code SY23 1LU, if you live within 30 miles come on in. travel money is paid.

    Don and I were going to train as samaritans before we got married, but when we mentioned that we were going to be getting married we were told that we couldn't train together and wouldn't be able to work the same shifts!

    So we decided not to because we'd have never seen each other in the evenings. We wanted to work together.

    Never mind eh.

    i like the idea of being a samaritan, but i have not had enough life experience...
    what sort of things are involved in the training? you would have to be quite professinal would'nt you?
    you can't just be anyone helping others, can you?
    thats the only voluntary thing i would like to do...

    I think that the main qualifications are to listen & not judge.

    Go for it peatee

    (Writing because i want more pretty stars)
    yes i think that we should help other people - and in return get pretty flashing stars - sorry got side tracked, if you have time give some up for other people! They need help, you have spare time, two birds with one stone!
