Dixons brighten up Blue Monday

8th February 2016

In January we supported the mental health charity AWARE’s Brighten up Blue Monday initiative which was held on Monday the 18th of January toraise awareness of mental health issues and to encourage workplaces to have a little fun on an otherwise potentially gloomy day. We were delighted that all of our staff took part in the initiative and sported a variety of outfits from yellow clothing and hair accessories to yellow wigs. 

We asked Colleen Milligan from AWARE to come to speak with our Health and Wellbeing group to talk about mental health training and awareness services and the initiatives being run by AWARE throughout the year including their Malin to Mizen cycle challenge. Our HW group were delighted to present her with a cheque for £160 which had been raised by our employees on Blue Monday.
