Mental Health Awareness Week

As it's Mental Health Awareness Week we wanted to highlight one of the community initiatives the football club is supporting. Members of the T-End Originals Supporters' Club are currently working through facilitator training with Andy's Man Club with a view to setting up the first AMC group in the Gloucestershire area.


Andy's Man Club meet every Monday (except Bank Holidays) and the 7pm-9pm sessions will be hosted in our very own 1883 bar. We hope these sessions will be up and running by the start of the new football season in August, once our supporters have completed all their training.


Adam Whitmore of the T-End Original Supporters' Club explains that:


"Andy's Man Club wants to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health and create a judgement free, confidential space where men can open up about the storms in their lives. It aims to achieve this through weekly, free to attend, peer to peer support groups for men aged over 18"


Adam went on to say:


"It is clear from talking to fellow supporters that there is a real need for more mental health groups like Andy's Man Club in the Gloucester area. Andy's Man Club is primarily based in the North of England but will soon have a lead co-ordinator for the South West, so hopefully our group will be the first of many in the county. As well as around 190 groups in the UK, Andy's Man Club also offers online group sessions on Mondays, so if anyone is looking for someone to talk to now, they can book for the next session on Monday 20th May by clicking on the link below"



If you would like to find out more and might be interested in becoming a facilitator then please email media@gcafc.co.uk and the club will put you in contact with Adam.
