Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, joined the Samaritans in Parliament on Monday 3 February for tea and biscuits to hear about the Samaritans’ work in suicide prevention and how people can become better listeners.
‘Brew Monday’ is a fundraising initiative used by the Samaritans to counter the winter blues. It is in its fourth consecutive year of raising vital funds for the charity. You can join the conversation on social media using #BrewMonday and make a donation on the Samaritan’s website.
The Samaritans are encouraging people to come together over a warm cup of tea to manage the ups and downs life has to offer. In particular, the Samaritans want their supporters to attend get-togethers this February with people they think might be feeling lonely and need someone to talk to.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I would like to thank the Samaritans for the essential work they are doing this winter to help those who are struggling.
“Human connection is so important when it comes to looking after our emotional wellbeing.
“This is why I am proud to support the Samaritans’ Brew Monday initiative where, this winter, any Monday can be a Brew Monday.”
