The windows also show the variety of ways that people can volunteer with the charity.

Director Liz Riach said: “The timing is good because of our celebrations next year. We wanted to promote what Samaritans do.

“We’ve just recently had a new group of volunteers, but we always need more.”

The charity will host a volunteer information evening at its centre at 2 Lennox Road, Worthing, on Thursday, December 6, at 7pm for those who want to find out more.
