Fundraising for Andy's Man Club

20 June 2023

After a year of fundraising, we were delighted to visit Andy’s Man Club’s Dunfermline North branch to present them with a big cheque and chat about the group’s activities throughout the kingdom.

Andy’s Man Club is a men’s suicide prevention and mental health charity that operates nationwide. The charity offers free peer-to-peer support groups both in person and online. They aim to end the stigma surrounding men’s mental health and help men facing mental health difficulties through the power of conversation.

Our colleagues choose Andy’s Man Club as their Charity of the Year in recognition of the fantastic work they do to help reduce suicide rates, which are considerably higher amongst men but also have a devastating impact on their friends and family.

Housing Officer, Lynn Mather, who attended the cheque presentation, explains ‘The whole organisation got involved, taking part in lots of different fundraising activities including a ‘Steptember’ challenge, Christmas jumper day, Word Cup sweepstake, coffee morning, cold water challenge, book sale and quiz. We even set up ‘FHGbay’ – a play on the well-known online auction website Ebay – where colleagues could list unwanted items for sale with all of the proceeds going into the charity pot.’

Andy’s Man Club representative Kenny Armour commented ‘The money Fife Housing Group have donated is huge for us, not only keeping the doors open in the nine clubs we have but also providing us with the resources to keep raising awareness and hopefully open more clubs within Fife. As a donation-led charity, the contributions we receive are massive for us and directly impact our members. We are forever grateful for all donations and any assistance in raising awareness as we work to prevent other families going through what Andy’s family have gone through and continue to go through today.’

We are delighted to have supported such a worthwhile cause over the last year and will continue supporting charities that make a difference in their local communities.
