Banish the Monday Blues with a Samaritans Brew

Swindon & District Samaritans are encouraging people throughout the area to beat Blue Monday by getting together for a supportive cuppa on Monday 21 January for Brew Monday.

Dubbed ‘the most difficult day of the year’, the charity is turning the third Monday in January on its head and is hoping to banish the January blues by encouraging friends, family and work mates to have a chat over a brew and raise some funds so we can continue to support anyone who is struggling to cope.

Located on Curtis Road, the Swindon branch of Samaritans currently has over 80 volunteers helping to answer some of the five million calls that Samaritans respond to every year from people going through a difficult time.  In addition, the branch also provides other support within the community through outreach in local schools, training in businesses and regular visits to HM Prison Erlestoke.

Darren Tee, volunteer branch director says:  “Isolation and loneliness are two of the main reasons people contact Samaritans, so getting together for a brew with friends can provide a lift on what is meant to be one of the most difficult days of the year.”

To help and find out how to get involved with Brew Monday and raise much needed funds and support for Swindon & District Samaritans call them on 01793 526430 or email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
