The Chairs Charity is picked at the Annual Meeting by the Chair of the Council and will remain for the time they are in office.
The Chair, Cllr T Giffard chose Bridgend Samaritans as the Chairs Charity 2020/21.
Set up in 1972, Bridgend Samaritans have been supporting our local community since 1972. Volunteers provide a telephone, email and face to face listening service every day of the week, including weekends and overnights. In 2019 we spent over 4,500 hours on the phone answering over 24,000 calls and replied to 1,000 email messages.
