Another 'Blue Monday' turned into 'Purple Monday’

Skipton international has turned the most depressing day of the year ‘Blue Monday’ into ‘Purple Monday’ by spreading joy across the Channel Islands.

This campaign introduced choirs GADOC and Aureole singing uplifting music to cheer people up during their lunch breaks.

“So many people struggle with their mental health at this time of year, and if we can bring a bit of light and sunshine for just one hour while people go about their business then I think that’s a really good thing to do” said PR Manager Julie Todd. 

UK TikTok sensation James B Partridge who has gained almost 130,000 followers on Tik Tok also supported Purple Monday.

“Music is such a powerful way to enhance your mood and lift the spirits, and so when Skipton International approached me for 'Purple Monday', I didn’t hesitate to offer my support to promote the joyful impact of music and share the message that you are never alone,” he said.

Skipton also joined forces with mental health charities Talking Benches and Kezia’s fund. Sarah Bamford the founder of Talking Benches said, “No one knows what is going on in someone’s life, and we mustn’t forget that people are dealing with problems every day, not just today”.
