some help this xmas time

what with all of the stress excitement of christmas sometimes we all forget that for many it can be a really hard time. i don't mean hard as in 'oh no i forgot a present for (insert name here)!' or 'oh no i burnt the potatoes!' for some people xmas can be lonely and terribly difficult to cope with.

below are a list of numbers that are available for use over the xmas period to anyone who may be struggling with problems of any kind.
