    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    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!

    We are a talking group, a place for men to come together in a safe environment to talk about issues/problems they be have faced or currently been facing. The benefit is there are other men who have been in similar situations and can help you with advice on how they have dealt with the situation. Some of our aims are to provide beneficial services, we will look at bringing in solicitors who can give advice about fathers seeing their children, running debt management classes for those with gambling addictions or money troubles as well as the possibility of anger management classes and even activity sessions ranging from sports like Rugby, Football, Basketball to walks and Fitness classes.

    AndysManClub is for any man who is going through a storm, been through a storm or just wants to come along and meet a good group of people with the aim of improving one another.

    7 months ago I weighed over 20 stone. After losing 7 stone in 7 months I decided i'd take my life to the next level by entering my first ever 5k run! To mark the 1st year of me starting my weight loss journey, I will be running Wigan 5k to raise money for AndysManClub
