SAMARITANS will have a temporary home next week as part of their annual awareness day.

A pop-up branch will appear in Colchester town centre on Wednesday to tell people about the Talk to Us campaign.

The charity’s van will be parked on the corner of Lion Walk and Eld Lane and Colchester Samaritans hope to remind people the service is available around the clock. It is one event of many being held across the country on 24/7.

The branch, which also covers Tendring and Suffolk Borders, will also be in Clacton town centre on Saturday August 31.

  • To get involved in the campaign text SUPPORT to 70123 to make a £3 donation to the charity. A standard message rate will also apply.
