Andy's Man Club – May’s Charity of the Month

RSS

Andy's Man Club was formed almost 3 years ago after the tragic suicide of Andy Roberts.

Look out for collection boxes on all our tills

Andy Roberts was 23 years old when he killed himself without any sign, signal or warning. The resultant devastation that hit his family was also followed by something more positive – his brother-in-law, professional rugby player Luke Ambler, became determined to prevent as many families as he could from going through such a trauma.

Andys Man Club

He formed a men’s group called Andy's Man Club, which in almost three years has become one of the most important organisations working to help men today – our group sessions are changing the lives of hundreds who have hit rock bottom and are continuing to grow in number at a remarkable rate. Currently over 430 men attend one of our 17 clubs across the UK, including 2 in Halifax (Shay Stadium and Hebden Bridge town hall)

Our success shows the depth of the problems out their for men, that they are crying out for such a place in which to share their issues, something which has traditionally been frowned upon.

With Luke and our growing band of Andy's Man Club members, the word is getting out there that we no longer need to keep our struggles to ourselves, and that true male bravery is about daring to open up, not burying your feelings away.

Andy's Man Club is a peer to peer support group that runs every Monday night at 7pm (Except Bank Hols). There is no referral, no signing in, no registration and no cost. Any man over 18 is welcome to come along, grab a brew and talk as much or as little as he’s comfortable. Men do not need to have had suicidal thoughts or a mental health condition to attend. They can just be going through one of life storms and need a place to share.
