The Coronas, The Script, Joe Wicks, Aimee, JC Stewart and Ruth Anne are also lined up to help raise awareness and funds for Jigsaw, Ireland’s leading youth mental health charity
Dublin radio station FM104 will host ‘Mind Your Noggin Day’ this Friday – May 22nd – in aid of Jigsaw, Ireland’s leading youth mental health charity, with the help of a host of well-known stars such as Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, Kodaline, The Coronas, The Script, Joe Wicks, Aimee, JC Stewart, Ruth Anne and many, many more…
The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness of mental health issues in young people, particularly at this time when many are struggling to deal with the fallout from Covid-19 and uncertainty around exam timetables. As well as hearing about the services provided by Jigsaw, FM104 listeners will also be encouraged to donate whatever they can to help the youth charity keep its services and supports available during this crucial time.
This Friday, May 22nd, FM104 presenters – including Jim Jim and Nobby from the Strawberry Alarm Clock, Emma Nolan, Ben Murray and all your FM104 favourites – will be on hand all day to update listeners on how the fundraising is going, while a range of very special guests will also help spread the Jigsaw message. There will also be a Freaks on Friday special gig with DJ Mark Knight that evening.
Donations can be made through www.FM104.ie/donate
Jigsaw’s mission is to create a society that values and supports young people’s mental health. The charity does this by delivering its free confidential one-to-one support services. Jigsaw helps communities be more supportive to young people and attempts to influence change in how our society responds to young people.
FM104’s CEO Margaret Nelson said: “On Friday May 22nd, FM104 will be encouraging our listeners to donate to this very worthy charity. As we all know, this particular time is very difficult for everyone so it is vitally important we do our bit to rally around our young people who are suffering acutely.”
“Isolation is leaving millions of us without the core things we value for our mental wellbeing. A hug, a conversation over coffee, a walk in the park with friends, a Sunday drive,” said Keith Judge, a Jigsaw Youth Advocate – a team of youth volunteers that support Jigsaw. “Jigsaw makes a big difference every day by helping young people in dark times. And, now, more than ever, they’re doing this by adapting to make sure they are still there for people during the pandemic. But they need help to do this, which is why they’re asking people to donate to help fund their vital supports.”
