Jenna Honeo, who knows firsthand the importance of mental well-being, launched a holiday fundraising campaign called 'Let's put mental health first this Christmas' to help the charity Mind.

Jenna said: "2020 has been a tough year for everyone. This year I am releasing a Christmas single for Mind because mental well-being is extremely important.

"Especially for those of us with mental health struggles. I’m raising money for Mind the mental health charity as they helped me in the past when I was struggling. I am an addict in recovery nearing two years clean from drugs and alcohol, and now I’m in a better place.

"I feel really passionately about giving back to those who were there when I needed help. Being heavily dependant on drugs, my mental health was at an all time low and the staff and volunteers at my local Brackley Mind really helped me get back on my feet. I feel their work is vital especially given the year we’ve all had."

Jenna released a Christmas single, her version of 'O Holy Night,' which is available on Amazon music, iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.

It can also be heard using the following YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqXd2Iu9T04&ab_channel=JennaHMusiJenna added: "I’ve created a Facebook page called ‘Let’s put mental health first this Christmas’ which was designed to keep everyone updated with news about the single, upcoming radio interviews and to let everyone know the running total of the funds raised.

"So far the page has over 1,400 members and the total raised for MIND is over £1,000. I would like to say a massive thank you to anyone who’s downloaded the single or donated to the justgiving page so far, everyone’s generosity is absolutely amazing."

She has raised more than £1,400 for the charity, Mind through an online JustGiving web page. Even though she has passed her £1,000 target she would like to raise as much as possible for the charity.

It really doesn’t discriminate. This is why it’s so important that as many people as possible download the single - the more downloads the more money we can raise."
