Beat the blues

Brighten up ‘Blue Monday’ on 18 January by organising an activity for Action for Children

January can be a challenging month and this year, it’s more important than ever that we stay positive, support each other and spread a little kindness.

This month, why not brighten up Blue Monday on 18 January by organising an activity (or two!) to lift everyone’s spirits, while at the same time, raising money for better youth mental health?

Our charity partner, Action for Children, has created this toolkit full of Blue Monday-related fundraising ideas that also encourage positive ways to look after yourself and others.

Every penny you raise will go towards The Blues Programme, Action for Children’s early intervention mental health programme for young people aged 13-19 years old.

Don’t forget, Royal Mail offers penny for penny match giving, helping your donation go further. Click here to sign up for matched giving.
