NPL show support for Andy's Man Club Tour

By James Gordon

NPL General Manager Angie Firth will show support to the Andy's Man Club Tour, which takes place this weekend, and NPL clubs and fans are invited to do the same.

Andy's Man Club is a mental health initiative that is an official partner of the NPL, with all 62 member clubs promoting the #ITSOKAYTOTALK campaign.

The tour takes place this weekend, Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September, ahead of world suicide prevention day on September 10.

Two different tours, one north/east and one south/west, will visit all 21 Andy’s Man Club sites at locations across the UK, with more than 60,000 leafets and car stickers to be distributed.

A total of 84 banners, one each to represent every man that dies of suicide each week, will be put up on bridges throughout the country.

Organisers are encouraging people to turn out to start the conversation and let people know that #ITSOKAYTOTALK.
