Bruntwood Works cheers up commuters for #NotSoBlueMonday

We launched the #NotSoBlueMonday campaign for workspace providers Bruntwood Works to cheer up commuters on the day claimed to be the most depressing day of the year – also known as Blue Monday.

The team was out in force across Leeds and Manchester to give out health-boosting and winter warming treats to the local press, morning and evening commuters including coffee, reusable water bottles, fruit, chocolates and desk plants.

In Leeds, Bruntwood Works treated commuters to a delicious hot drink for a morning treat along with desk plants which have been proven to boost productivity. Bruntwood Works also captured the attention of Leeds commuters on their way home from work with desk plants, chocolates and fresh fruit.

In Manchester, the Uplifted Voices Gospel Choir entertained the public passing by 111 Piccadilly with their unique rendition of Blue Monday by New Order. The 111 building was also lit up for the evening by it’s innovative new 200ft lighting installation, giving an incredible preview of what the full lighting scheme designed by Luke Artingstall will look like when it is launched later this year.

As a result of the Bruntwood Works Blue Monday campaign we gained great regional coverage from titles like Place North West, The Business Desk, Yorkshire Business Daily and About Manchester, as well as a number of social posts shared from the public and media.
