REGRETFULLY THE 6TH ANNUAL SAMS RIDE WILL NOT BE HELD DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR!
OUR SUPPORTERS
We are sorry to have to advise you that this year’s Sams Ride has unfortunately had to be cancelled due to an increase in the threat of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

We are full intending that Sams Ride WILL go ahead next year, with a provisional date of Sunday 6th June 2021 and we hope to see you then.

The Samaritans continue to play a vital role and this will be especially important in the coming months, particularly with self-isolation being a real challenge for those living alone who need support. The Salisbury branch still needs to raise vital funds this year and any support that you can give will be gratefully received.

If you have already entered for the 2020 event, you may donate your entry fee for this year, defer it to next year, request a refund (by 30th April) or alternatively if you have not yet entered but would like to make a donation, please click on one of the boxes below:
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPECIAL FUND RAISER!

With Sams Ride cancelled this year, the Salisbury branch has a large hole it it's income this year despite a huge increase in calls and many people have been doing individual fund raising to support us including virtual rides and other challenges. 

Paul is a volunteer at the Samaritans Salisbury branch and his daughter Ella, who is 29 and has Downs Syndrome, has offered to do a bit of fundraising for us.  She is planning to do 1,000 bounces on her trampoline over 2 days starting on Saturday 4 July. This is a wonderful gesture and I hope you will be able to support her.  You can donate HERE
