Organisations team up to tackle Blue Monday

3 minute read

Lakeside Care Home partnered up with the charity My Life and social enterprise, A Good Day, to brighten up Blue Monday - recognised as the saddest day of the year.

With the support of My Life, an innovative charity that connects people with their communities to improve lives, the organisations held a coffee afternoon for their staff, beneficiaries and residents to mix and make connections.

Millennium’s homes have previously joined in with several My Life campaigns including Tea with a Pony and The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration.

The collaborative event, held at Thompson House Equestrian Centre, also saw Millennium Care donate 60 gift boxes to My Life’s beneficiaries.

The boxes were created by A Good Day, a well-being gift company that believes both people and the planet matter, with a mission to support those through gifting.

They source sustainable products and packaging to help support local charities and community groups with gift box donations.

“We have worked with My Life before; they are a great organisation and we are thrilled to be starting the year with this little event. Going forward we would love to support their charity and we know our residents can benefit from their amazing facilities and space.

“A big focus for Millennium Care this year is to work with and support the community as best we can and working with My Life is a great start.”

Gail Howard, Registered Manager at Lakeside Care Home

“We are very passionate about connecting with the community and creating opportunities for people to help reduce isolation and loneliness, we are looking forward to connecting with Millennium Care’s homes and planning future events offering inclusion and purpose for many people who may not ordinarily have the opportunities - together we are better!”

Jodie Crompton, Operations Manager at My Life

“We are thrilled to be able to support a fantastic charity like My Life, who make such a positive difference in people’s lives.

“Millennium care shares our passion to contribute to the community in a meaningful way, and we look forward to future partnerships. Amazing things happen when we all pull together and care for our people and planet.

“It is through partnerships like this we can help organisations to achieve their social and environmental impact goals, supporting local charities and community groups and building a more sustainable world.”
