The #TradesTopTunes playlist challenge has been created to encourage installers to share their favourite feel-good song and nominate three others to do the same, as well as donating £3 to The OLLIE Foundation which helps deliver suicide awareness, intervention and prevention training in communities to support young people who might be struggling.
MENTalk chose The OLLIE Foundation due to the crucial work it does in promoting good mental health for young people in the early stages of life and its ambition to create a society where no one feels that suicide is their only option, especially young people.
All nominated tracks for the challenge will be added to a #TradesTopTunes playlist on Spotify to form the UK’s first official installer-curated playlist, designed specifically for tradespeople as they return to work.
As well as doing good for a great cause, the playlist challenge has been designed by Baxi and MENTalk to help boost morale within the installer community at a time of great uncertainty, with many tradespeople heading back to their jobs following the recent changes in government guidance.
Steve Smith, one of the founding members of MENTalk, said: “Listening to music has been proven to be good for your mental health and can really lift your mood, so the playlist charity challenge is a great way to help bring people together online during a particularly challenging time.
To take part in the #TradesTopTunes challenge, installers simply need to visit Baxi’s Facebook @BaxiUK or Instagram and Twitter @BaxiBoilers, where they can post their favourite song, tag three installers and donate £3 via Baxi’s #TradesTopTunes Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/TradesTopTunes.
