Chesil Rocks has been an annual music and arts festival since 2012, with all proceeds going to Samaritans of Dorset. At our 2023 event, we raised another £18,000 for the charity, bringing our total raised for Samaritans over the years to £108,000.  


With no government funding, our Samaritans - who are all volunteers - need to raise £40,000 each year to keep their branch open and maintain their service. Our contribution enables them to worry less  about fundraising and focus more on what they do best.


 This is why we support Samaritans.
