It's January, and for those who don't know, we are just two weeks away from Blue Monday – the date commonly known as the most miserable day of the year.
With this in mind, the guy's behind the popular live event Bongo's Bingo have put together an event to distract you from those Monday blues, and it's all in support of The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
The special show will take place at The Albert Hall in Manchester on Monday 20th January and will push a crucial mental health agenda through its hosts, dancers and production.
The four shows in Liverpool, London, Manchester and Glasgow will create essential awareness through the hosts, dancers and production in each venue. The origins of Blue Monday stem from the traditionally bad January weather, dark nights and the post Xmas-lull.
Whilst all of these can be common to experience in January for many of the population trying to get through the first month of the year, it is much more important to recognise they can also be a trigger for actual depression in some people, and to be able to recognise the symptoms, too.
Bongo’s Bingo is always about having the best fun possible, but it also cherishes the mental well-being of its staff and most importantly its audience.
So with this firmly in mind, the successful events company is proud to be supporting CALM throughout 2020, helping to challenge and break the stigma around mental health whilst raising much-needed funds for the charity.
And profits from all four events on Monday January 20th will be donated straight to CALM.
CALM are the incredible charity that offer help and support to those struggling with suicidal thoughts and depression, which can affect anyone. They operate a helpline 7 hours a day, 7 days a week between 5 pm and midnight which both men and women can use in a time of crisis on: 0800 58 58 58.
