VOLUNTEERS at Portsmouth’s Samaritans are gearing themselves up for a busy festive period.

Last year, Samaritans received around 244,000 calls over Christmas from people in the UK and Ireland.

Mary Noble, branch director in Portsmouth, said: ‘Many of our callers have told us that Christmas is a tough time for them, which is why our volunteers will be available round the clock, for anyone who is struggling to cope.’
