Get everyone together online (or even over the phone) and have a Brew Monday to raise money for Samaritans. Every donation can bring warmth to someone at their toughest time.
Help share the warmth, socialise safely and ask guests to donate what they would’ve given for a slice of cake for the pleasure of your virtual company instead.
Have a Brew Monday any Monday, or a day that’s good for you.
Here are a few ways you can connect virtually:
- Group audio/video calling is available on Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp (up to 4 people on a call) and Facebook messenger.
- Traditional systems used for conference calls work just as well for connecting people and for those not comfortable on camera.
And don’t forget, by using your virtual get-together to raise money for Samaritans, you'll help give people having a tough time somewhere to turn when they need to talk. Just £5 can help answer a call.
Your Brew, your way
Have a Brew Monday at work
Connect with your colleagues with a workplace get together. Having a Brew Monday (virtual or not) helps pick people up, let’s colleagues get to know each other, and is a lovely way for employers to show they care about wellbeing.
Have yours at home
Keep it small or make it big. A Brew Monday is a good excuse to invite over neighbours, or parents after the morning school run. Or just to get friends together you haven’t seen for a while, for a really good chat. Let them know you’re raising money for Samaritans too and would love donations in exchange for tea, cake and hugs! Every £5 raised answers a call for help.
Do it wherever you like
At school. At the gym or the rugby club. In the village hall or the church. Introduce people to each other, make new friends, feel your community enjoying itself. Put out a few collection boxes, ask for donations for a slice of cake or have a competition that gets people talking and raises money for Samaritans. Games could include biscuit decorating or ‘toss the teabag’ (into a teapot!). Or do it all virtually, it's completely up to you.
