Changes on Blue Monday

18 January 2016

Blue Monday is said to be the most depressing day of  the year. After the excitement of Christmas January can be a difficult time, credit card bills arrive, resolutions go out of the window and the winter starts to feel like it’ll never end. For those who are vulnerable January can be a critical time, and knowing where to get help can be a huge barrier to accessing support.

The Blue Monday Galleries event showcased local organisations who offer support on money, housing, benefits, physical and mental health, refugee rights, getting into work and training, volunteering and more!

We had a great time, feeling anything but ‘blue’ as we told local people all about our fantastic service, handed out leaflets, chatted to members who came to visit us and even met the Lord Mayor! We had a lot of interest both from potential new members and potential new volunteers. All in all we feel it was a day well spent so a big thank you to everyone who supported us!
