Speak Up Liveathon
17th January 2022

After an incredibly challenging 2020 and 2021, Shifties want to raise awareness of the importance for people to talk when they are feeling low and need support. Starting at 12am on the morning of 17th January 2022, the so called most depressing day of the year “Blue Monday”, our Founder Alex Hughes will host a 24 hour live stream with small business owners, mental health experts and inspiring guests associated with Shifties. We will complete challenges, share stories and advice on how to shift to a positive mindset in 2022.

At the same time we hope to raise £10,000 for the charity CPSL Mind, an organisation devoted to supporting people with mental health concerns, and their families across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire.
