Southport Samaritans Fundraising at Tesco Kew March 24th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Volunteers from Southport Samaritans were fundraising today (Sunday 24th March 2013) at Tesco Supermarket in Kew, Southport. They were helping customers fill up their shopping bags and taking donations if offered. To continue to operate and provide their service to their callers, they raise all of the necessary funds themselves to keep the Branch going. They receive no Government funding and rely totally upon the generosity of the general public, the support of local community organisations, Lottery Grants, private donations and the ingenuity of their volunteers in fundraising.
