Letter to Editor: Go Green for Samaritans in the build up to the London Marathon

Charity / Wed 13th Mar 2024 at 07:21am

“”Samaritans is the Official Charity of the Year for the 2024 TCS London Marathon.

THE SAMARITANS would love for you to show your support by turning green over the Marathon weekend, on Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April 2024.

We want all our runners, whether they’re running the marathon in London or virtually in our local area, to feel part of #TeamSamaritans and really proud to be supporting us, and to show millions of people across the UK and Ireland that whatever they’re facing, a Samaritan will face it with them.  

Could you help us by turning your building green?

It would be great to see as many parts of the country as possible lit up green all weekend to mark the event. Please could you contact me by responding to this message if you can help out in any way. 

Ware branch, who are your local Samaritans branch, are hosting their own inclusive “marathon” which requires an individual or a team to walk or run 26 miles over 26 days starting on 26 March until 20 April, the day before the London Marathon. This can be a paid for place of just £13 for an individual, £26 for a team, or one in which you sign up to Justgiving to raise sponsorship. There will be a medal and certificate for each participant. A group of us will be taking part in Parkruns in the community on 30 March (Panshanger), 6 April (Barclay Park), 13 April (Westmill) and 20 April (Harlow) so why not come along and see us?

You can find more details on our website at https://www.samaritans.org/branches/ware/ware-marathon-2024/

Our vision is that fewer people die by suicide – we are entirely self funded so please help us help our callers. “”
