Beat Blue Monday

You can Beat Blue Monday in January...

Blue icing on the cake for blue Monday

Students at Huddersfield University baked cakes to beat Blue Monday – and raised more than £70 for the Katie Piper Foundation. The bake day was organised by journalism student Siobhan Southern who has several friends who have been treated for burns and scars. The Katie Piper Foundation was set up to make a difference to burns survivors. Siobhan enlisted the help of Debbie Lloyd, Laura Dandy, Nathalie Ku, Christiaan von Hohenzollern and Matt Davies to bake and sell cakes in the Journalism building on the Huddersfield campus. The Journalism and Media team have regularly risen to the challenge of Blue Monday – the third working Monday in January, said to be the most depressing day of the year. The annual “beat blue Monday” activities were started by Wakefield based PR guru Andy Green, who is a regular guest lecturer at the university. Last year, staff and students invited a Brazilian drummer to give them a demonstration and percussion lesson in the department’s TV studio.
