THURROCK Samaritans will be holding their annual summer fete and garden party this Saturday.
The Samaritans provide a vital service to individuals who often feel that they have nowhere else left to turn, and this service relies on the community to keep going.
The event will take place on Saturday 31st August from 12pm until 5pm at 16 Little Lullaway, Basildon, Essex, SS15 5JJ (Samaritans building Near Ballards Walk Shops).
A spokesperson for the Samaritans, Jay-Marie Mackenzie said: “Everyone is welcome to our garden fete. There will be lots of fun for all of the family, including face painting, mini manicures, a tombola stall and a raffle.
“We also have a range of other stalls including a bottle stall, bric-a-brac and a refreshment stall with cakes and drinks.
“So why not join us for a cream tea in our garden on the 31st of August”.
All of the money raised from this event will go towards the upkeep and maintenance of Basildon and Thurrock Samaritans branch.
