Replace the Blue with a Brew this Monday!
Published: 20 January 2020
Today has become widely known as Blue Monday (typically the third Monday of January) because it’s apparently the most depressing day of the year. This is thought to be triggered by numerous factors such as the debt and the cold weather.
But 20 January doesn’t have to be cold, grey and miserable. We are supporting the Samaritans annual campaign by encouraging you to turn Blue Monday into Brew Monday. The campaign is all about getting people together over a warm cup of tea and a good conversation. So why not turn today into something positive by inviting a neighbour or friend over today for a brew and a natter?
We’re also promoting the volunteering opportunities we have available in our community on this day. 39% of people say that volunteering for a charity would help them to feel less lonely, according to research by Marie Curie. Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people and give back to your community. Here are some of the exciting volunteering opportunities that you could get involved with:
Grow Speke is a thriving community garden. You can come and help out with growing food, keeping bees, teaching young people about nature and helping at community events throughout the year. Or you can just pop in for a brew, and you'll get a friendly welcome from the volunteers!
If you're interested in volunteering at Grow Speke, then please get in touch by calling 07860839303. Visit the Grow Speke website for more information.
