New director for Salisbury Samaritans
A NEW director has been appointed to run the Salisbury and District branch of the Samaritans.
Bev de Cuevas was chosen by volunteers to fulfil the role for the next three years.
Mrs de Cuevas, a retired research scientist who was brought up in South Africa and moved to Salisbury 13 years ago, has been volunteering for the Samaritans for the last eight years.
Her priorities are to increase the number of volunteers - both listeners who take calls and support volunteers who keep the branch functioning.
She also hopes to reach out to more community groups and continue fundraising as it costs £35,000 to keep the branch running.
“We are currently very excited about a theatre night at Salisbury Playhouse on Thursday, November 14 at 7.30pm when a proportion of the ticket price for a production of The Recruiting Officer by George Farquar will be donated to us,” she said.
Tickets cost £21 and can be ordered at salisburysamaritans.org.
The charity will also have a chalet selling gifts at Salisbury Christmas market on Sunday, December 8.
