Brighten up somebody's day with a cwtch & win a week in the sun

A cwtch is for life, not just for Blue Monday so brighten up somebody's day and you could win a week in the sun!

Ahead of Blue Monday, the supposed most depressing day of the year, are urging people to beat the January blues by sharing a cwtch. 

With many of the UK's Twitter users taking to the social networking site this month to vent their frustration at having the 'January Blues', are encouraging social media users to spread a special kind of Welsh hug known as a 'cwtch' (pronounced cuch).

We've even created a 'Guide to the perfect cwtch' infographic to help you on your way.

The importance of a cwtch

Watch our short film that shows how important a cwtch is and what your day is missing without one.
