King’s Lynn Samaritans set for a move, thanks to legacy

The future of the Samaritans in King's Lynn has been secured, thanks to a legacy.
The group, which provides vital emotional support services, has been based at 26, Queen Street for nearly half a century.
But its new home from spring 2017 will be in St James Street. Samaritans services will continue to be offered in Queen Street until the move.
Trustee David Conner said: 'We are moving to an address, 51-55 St James Street that has been empty for a while, and used to be the home of Thornalley funeral services.
'We had been at Queen Street pretty much since the Samaritans started in King's Lynn 48 years ago.

'We are able to move thanks to a legacy from a local person, directly as a result of the help we gave their relative. We have bought the property and it guarantees our long-term future.'
