Doves back new Samaritans campaign

It’s good to talk, say the Mancs

Doves are pledging their support for The Samaritans’ new winter Campaign.

The charity are encouraging young people to discuss their emotional problems before they reach a more serious stage, something the band are backing.

“Personally and as a band we went through a hard time about 10 years ago,” the band explained.

Adding: “Being male and northern we never really talked about what was happening around us. Depression can be a taboo subject, but I know we were all affected by it at the time. Samaritans provide an essential lifeline for a lot of people who are going through hard times, especially at this time of year.”
