A male suicide prevention charity will celebrate its continued growth with a football match at Gigg Lane which will be free to attend.
Bury’s Andy’s Man Club will take on partner organization Rochdale Group at noon on Sunday August 14th.
The charity aims to celebrate men who come together, chat and develop a support network.
The group’s goal is to reduce the rate of male suicides by speaking in a confidential, non-judgmental space through free, weekly peer support groups.
Andy Man Club host Jacob Critchley helped organize the match.
His mother, Angela Critchley, who is also helping out by promoting the game, said: “You just have to show up. Bring your fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, friends, anyone.
“Everyone really came together to organize this match.
“It’s just to talk and attend the group, no matter how big your problems are.”
Doors will open at 11 a.m. and kick-off will be at noon.
Admission to the 90-minute game will be free and attendees will also be able to watch Bury’s women’s team play after the game.
By hosting the event, the club hopes more men will speak out and potentially join their growing group.
Andy’s Man Club in Bury is located at the Bury Sports Club on Radcliffe Road.
