    Story

    ANDY ROBERTS was a loving and doting father, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. He was an all round top guy, one of the truly nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting, and an honour to of been his brother in law. Sadly and tragically, without any warning Andrew was taken away from all his us and friends by suicide. What is staggering is that 4500 men under 45 each year die by suicide, thats more than any illnesses, diseases, RTA's and then top that off with 42% of men aged 18-45 have considered suicide as an option, i believed something had to be done! I was very naive when setting up #ANDYSMANCLUB, I knew the statistics but I guess I did not realise just how big the problem was were facing or how much our group is needed until the #ITSOKAYTOTALK Selfie Campaign. The out pour of message I have received to set up a group in areas across the country and the world has been outstanding. Initially I was very stubborn in that I would self fund everything myself, albeit this for a group in Halifax possibly a little further a field. Seeing how much demand is needed, I know there is no way on this earth I can do this myself without help. So far, the support show and help in terms of raising awareness has been huge but awareness is only the first part of this campaign. Why encourage men to talk but then give them no platform to talk? After all, our main issue as men is talking to those closest to us as we don't want to show weakness or burden our loved ones. I need your help not only to help me raise money to be able to help pay for facilities and activities and the setting up of costs, but I would love more people to come forward and email me and lets get a #ANDYSMANCLUB set up your area. If we can do this, we can make a huge difference, we can offer a completely free group to men everywhere. The environment we have created is what makes our group work and its that we want to spread across the country and who knows... WORLD??

    We want to be able to help start ANDYSMANCLUBS all across the country, maybe even world? We have estimated a good starting point is £500 to pay for facilities, set up costs and activities for the men. We would like your help to set up 20 groups to start with! Thanks in advanced.
