Graham Norton is one of the celebrities backing Samaritans' Feel Good Friday, encouraging people at work to get involved in the fundraising day, taking place on Friday 1 February 2013.

Sponsored by healthcare provider Simplyhealth for the second consecutive year, Feel Good Friday aims to get companies to take part in ‘feel good’ themed activities, in return for a donation to Samaritans, the helpline charity for people struggling to cope.

Graham Norton said: "When I’m having a bad day I go running with my dogs to perk myself up. It’s important to feel good at work, especially in my job!

“Feel Good Friday is the perfect excuse to have a laugh at work without feeling guilty! It’s easy to get involved, why not offer office massages in return for a donation?! Come on, get on board and help raise vital funds for Samaritans.”

To kick-start the events and get people in the feel-good mood, Samaritans has launched Guess the Giggle – a competition involving Graham Norton, and celebrity supporters Linda Nolan, Alesha Dixon, Craig Revel Horwood, June Sarpong and Claudia Winkleman. Participants who play the game on the Feel Good Friday website can win dinner for two with Samaritans’ celebrity ambassador, Linda Nolan.

Mark Day from Simplyhealth said: “This is the second year that we have been involved in Feel Good Friday. The day is all about doing something fun and that makes you feel good. This year comedy is the main focus and we hope that every one gets involved by organising their own event, to help to raise money for a great cause. Why not start by guessing the celebratory giggle on the Feel Good Friday website.”
