Local stores brightened the lives of customers earlier this year with a gift card giveaway.

The giveaway happened on Monday, January 16 - billed by some as the most depressing day of the year, at Tesco in both Caister and Great Yarmouth.

Customers were randomly selected every half hour to win either a £10, £20 or £50 gift card.

Falling on the third Monday in January, Blue Monday is said to be the most depressing day of the year due to a combination of Christmas debt, back to work blues and winter weather.

Customers were also treated to blue refreshments including blueberry muffins and non-alcoholic cocktails.

Checkout manager Karen Berry from Tesco in Yarmouth said: “Our Blue Monday giveaway events both here and in Caister, were a light-hearted way to interact with our customers and lighten the mood on what is supposedly the most depressing day of the year.”
