Default [W&DARC] Samaritans Special event


Samaritans Special event

Posted: 22 Jan 2017 06:51 AM PST

The Beacon Museum, Whitehaven will host a variety of special events
throughout the weekend of 11th and 12th March 2017 to support local charity
Samaritans of West Cumbria and to raise awareness of the work undertaken by

In addition to the scheduled beacon exhibits on display, members of the
Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) will broadcast voice and digital mode
transmissions from Amateur Radio Station GB1SWC. As well as live tracking
of the International Space Station and other interactive demonstrations
such as a Morse Code Game, there will be sending and receiving of
Television pictures and digital information over radio waves.

If radio conditions are favourable members of the public will also be
invited to exchange greeting messages on air with licensed stations in the
UK and abroad.

Suicide kills three times more people than road traffic accidents and West
Cumbria has one of the highest suicide rates in the UK. Local volunteers
from Samaritans will be on hand during the weekend to explain the work of
their organisation and can be available to talk with anyone in private and
in confidence if needed.

Nationally Samaritans respond to more than 5million calls for help a year
and it is only through the public’s kind donations andÂ*our trained
volunteers that ensures we are always there for anyone struggling to cope..

You don’t have to be suicidal to call Samaritans. Whatever you’re going
through, call free any time from any phone on 116 123 (this number is free
to call and will not show on bills), , or visit to find details of your nearest branch.
Members from the local Samaritans organisation will be in attendance
throughout the weekend to talk about their work and if required can offer
private and confidential listening services.

Details of the event will shortly be published in the radio and local press
and information is also available on QRZÂ*
