Inspiring workspace providers Bruntwood Works set out to beat the January blues on Blue Monday – dubbed the most depressing day of the year by cheering up Manchester commuters through random acts of kindness.
City-goers were gifted outside Bruntwood Work’s 111 Piccadilly building and Trafford House throughout the day with health-boosting and winter warming treats including reusable water bottles, fruit, chocolates and desk plants.
All gifts were carefully designed to inspire workers to get the most out of the new year and put a smile on faces throughout the city.
Passersby were also entertained by Uplifted Voices Gospel Choir who sang their unique version of Blue Monday by New Order outside 111 Piccadilly, as the building was lit up with its new innovative lighting installation.
The dynamic lighting installation to the north elevation of the building is now complete and will be showcasing vibrant visual content to give the public a taster of the lighting installations dynamic capabilities.
Bruntwood Works owns, lets and manages over 25 properties in Manchester City Centre, including Lowry House, Blackfriars, and 111 Piccadilly, which is currently undergoing refurbishment to transform the ground floor, with the addition of its new 200ft innovative lighting installation as part of the building transformation project.
“With the festivities of Christmas over and the winter blues in our midst, we wanted to go the extra mile to put a spring in the step of commuters across the city. It was great to see such a positive reaction and we hope our gifts were an extra bonus to brighten up their day.
We pride ourselves on offering outstanding and smart workspaces that help a wide range of businesses thrive. These spaces contribute to the physical and mental wellbeing of our customers, whether that’s by providing exercise facilities, access to wellness, and community events or a stimulating environment. We’re always exploring new ways to keep our customers happy, energised and work-focused.“ (Andrew Cooke, regional director for Bruntwood Works)
