Rail staff in Leeds are backing Samaritans’ bid to turn ‘Blue Monday’ into ‘Brew Monday.

January 15 has been dubbed ‘the most difficult day of the year’ so the two organisations encourage people to connect over a cuppa by offering passengers free tea bags and listening tips, as well as promoting Samaritans’ services.

Rail staff across Yorkshire & Humberside are backing Samaritans' bid to turn 'Blue Monday' into 'Brew Monday' on 15 January, by helping get people together for tea and a chat, on what has been dubbed 'the most difficult day of the year'.

Tracey Whitehead Samaritans Leeds Branch said: “We’re pleased to be taking part in Brew Monday. We want to highlight the value of people taking time to chat, rather than going it alone with their thoughts. You don’t need special skills to encourage someone to open up over a cuppa.”

Students from Leeds College of Music will also brighten up mornings with pop-up performances from Monday until February 5 at 7.30-9.30am, with a jazz duo the first to perform in front of Pret A Manger.
