MENTalk record Christmas classic to help the homeless

Members of the MENTalk community, supported by Baxi, have recorded a new version of “Do they know it’s Christmas?” to raise money for people living on the streets as well as raising awareness of homelessness. Thirteen singers came together to help raise vital funds towards providing essentials like sleeping bags, clothes and food for homeless people in Birmingham.

Steve Blair, one of the founding members of MENTalk, spent 48 hours living on the street to raise funds. He says: “At MENTalk, we are committed to highlighting the topic of mental health and the impact this can have on people’s lives. This latest campaign is extremely close to our hearts, as we wanted to show those who are struggling that there are people who are willing to take action and shine a light on the situation.

“There are so many of us who are only one pay cheque away from experiencing similar difficulties, which emphasises even more the need to address the current crisis.”

Baxi sales director Andy Workman says: “We are proud to partner with MENTalk in its quest to encourage conversations around mental health, as well as applauding the fantastic work being carried out to raise awareness about homelessness.

“Like many workers across the nation, installers are under increased pressure and stress as a result of the pandemic. It’s important for us to acknowledge this and support the installer community wherever we can, going above and beyond what we normally do as a manufacturer.”
