Samaritans was founded in 1953 by Bartonian Chad Varah who described the service then as “just a man willing to listen, with a base and an emergency telephone’. The organisation now has more than 20,000 volunteers across some two hundred branches, answering a call for help every six seconds from people who are going through a difficult time. David Wildman from the Scunthorpe branch describes the work of Samaritans now and in the past.
