Brew Monday, Time for a cuppa & a catch up

Monday 16th of January is the date for a cuppa and a catch up as part of the Samaritans Brew Monday campaign at the St Magnus Cafe Kirkwall from 10.30am till 2.30pm

Joan Jones, is the Director of Samaritans of Orkney and she explained:

“We are grateful to the Council and those at the St Magnus Centre Café for agreeing to host the event. We will have a few volunteers manning a table within the café from 10.30am-2.30pm. The volunteers will be handing out tea bags in small packets with the Samaritans logo on them and our phone number in case anyone wants to talk to us.

“Make time for a cuppa and a catch up with those you care about – it could be the start of a very important conversation.

“We are kicking off the campaign on Monday but it doesn’t matter when or where you are – if you are sharing a cuppa sharing and listening, that’s the most important thing.”

The Samaritans website has tips and downloadable resources for anyone who wishes to run their own Brew Monday (or on any day). It can even be done virtually.
