The new Gibraltar branch of the Samaritans has been awarded a £10,000 grant towards expenses and setting up costs by the government.

The cheque was handed over to Marie Lou Guerrero, the chairwoman of Gib Sams, earlier this week by Neil Costa, minister for Health, Care and Justice, and deputy chief minister Dr Joseph García.

When the Samaritans service is up-and-running, the number to call will be 116123 and will operate 24/7.
