We are supporting the Samaritans who are keen to invite Men’s Sheds to participate in ‘Brew Monday’.
The message from the Samaritans is:
When it’s cold and grey outside, getting people together to connect over a warming cuppa helps to make us feel better and manage the ups and downs of life.
This winter, we’ll be encouraging people to have a Brew Monday to brighten up a cold and grey Monday or any other day that suits them. They can use their get-together to raise money for Samaritans, so someone having a really tough time has somewhere to turn if they need us.
Brew Monday will be launching on 20 January 2020, the third Monday in January, which is usually known as ‘Blue Monday’. Blue Monday is often described as one of the most difficult days of the year, but at Samaritans we take this with a pinch of salt. It’s not backed by any scientific evidence and we know that people can struggle to cope at any time of the year.
For Brew Monday 2020, Samaritans in Wales would love to invite Welsh Men’s Sheds to get involved and help them promote the importance of talking. We would like to encourage Men’s Sheds across Wales to hold a get-together with tea and cake and most importantly, a good old chat.
To get involved and express your interest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org We will let you know how to set up your event and sign you up for a free Brew Monday kit.
