100 bouquets of flowers were left at Liverpool ONE to bring smiles on Blue Monday
5 years ago
One hundred bouquets of flowers were left on the streets of Liverpool ONE this morning (Monday 21 January) in a bid to bring a smile to the faces of unsuspecting shoppers.
Today is allegedly the most depressing day of the year, or Blue Monday as it has come to be known.
With the weather turning bleak and pay day still around the corner, staff at Liverpool ONE decided to spread some much needed cheer to the start of the working week.
Brightly coloured bouquets were placed around the complex overnight, packaged into pairs, awaiting for them to be collected by their new owners. Those lucky enough to come across the beautiful blooms are encouraged to share the love and pass on a bunch to a friend, partner or even a stranger.
It is hoped that the goodwill gesture could cause a chain reaction of positivity across the region.
Donna Howitt, marketing director at Liverpool ONE, said: “Following a positive response last year, we know this small token helps make Blue Monday that bit easier for our visitors. We hope we’ve managed to brighten up their day again this year.
“I would encourage anyone who received one of our gifts today to return the gesture and give someone else a nice surprise as well. Hopefully hundreds of people will benefit from this small act of kindness.”
