Please, be a lifeline, and help to save lives this Christmas

Give a loved one a card this Christmas, and provide someone else with a lifeline.

Christmas is not a festive time for everyone. Financial stress, isolation, mental health and suicidal thoughts don’t take holidays. Nor do our volunteers, who are available 24 hours a day over the festive season to talk with those in need of a friend at Christmas.
