The Samaritans of Cornwall
The Samaritans of Cornwall at Truro received a laptop computer and £300 to purchase a portable projector from the Eddie George Memorial Fund in 2014. The fund, set up in memory of the late Lord George, supports community projects in Cornwall with information technology.
Lady Vanessa George said “It was a privilege to visit the Samaritan centre in Truro. We were pleased to be able to present them with a much needed laptop computer from the Cornwall Community Foundation. We were given such a warm welcome by dedicated volunteers, and heard about the vital help and advice they are able to give to those who phone or text around the clock in need of support.”
