Apparently experts have identified the third Monday of the month as the most depressing day of the year. Let’s face it – a combo of rubbish weather, diet resolutions and a lack of cash sees few people skipping down the road to an ‘Uptown Funk’ soundtrack.
We get it. It’s easy to wallow in self-pity during the endless wait until payday, but let’s face it – these are first world problems. What if you had real worries in 2017? What if you or a member of your family was affected by cancer? You’d hope that help, support and advice was available. Luckily it is.
We want to do something different this Blue Monday. We want to highlight the fantastic work done by Maggie’s centres up and down the country. Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks. The first Maggie’s centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996 and since then, Maggie’s has continued to grow, with 19 centres at major NHS cancer hospitals in the UK.
Keep an eye on @DrummondCentral on Twitter – we’ll be tweeting out more about Maggie’s all day.
