Merseyrail helps to turn Blue Monday into Yellow Monday

Merseyrail was doing its best to help banish any Blue Monday feelings amongst its customers, with a range of activities including a choir, gift giveaways and local singers.

Monday 15 January has been identified as the most difficult day of the year for many, as memories of the Christmas period fade, the poor weather continues, and New Year’s resolutions begin to be broken.

So Merseyrail teamed up with Liverpool BID’s ‘Yellow Monday’ campaign designed to banish the blues and brighten up people’s start to the week.

The Liverpool BID campaign has seen giveaways of coffee and pastry, a lunchtime Yoga class, a morning mindfulness class and a sound bath at Liverpool Parish Church.

And Merseyrail was delighted to join in the fun.

Sally Ralston BEM, Community Involvement Manager at Merseyrail, said: “We decided to add a bit of sunshine to the bluest day of the year and gave away 2,000 free Merseyrail tickets to Liverpool BID businesses and their employees.

“Our customers travelling this morning were able to enjoy singer Mike Blue at Moorfield station’s Old Hall Street entrance, while our friends at the Woodlands Hospice ‘Sing Me’ Choir entertained everyone at Liverpool Central station.

“We also ran a special golden envelope lucky dip at both stations during the morning and afternoon peaks. There were sweet treats for those who didn’t bag themselves a voucher. And three lucky people walked away with a £100 money off voucher for restaurant chain Mowgli.”
