Care Group Helps Men’s Mental Health Charity

A Scarborough care provider has stepped in to help a local charity provide more help to men dealing with mental health issues.

Saint Cecilia’s Care Group is sponsoring a second venue for the Scarborough group of Andy’s Man Club, a men’s mental health charity.

At the moment the Scarborough group meets from 6.30pm each Monday at the Library on Vernon Road in Scarborough.

But from 9th October the group will also meet at Saint Cecilia’s day care centre on Eastway, Eastfield, again from 6.30pm.

Saint Cecilia’s Director Aaron Padgham said: “Andy’s Man Club provides invaluable help and support to local men who might be suffering from mental health issues.

“When we learned that they were looking for a second meeting place over the south side of Scarborough we were only too pleased to support them.

“Helping our residents and day care visitors and our own staff to take care of their mental health is an integral part of the care we offer and so we are delighted to sponsor Andy’s Man Club and hopefully spread the excellent work it does to more people in the Scarborough area.”

Scarborough Andy’s Man Club Lead Facilitator Shaun Tymon said:

“Andy’s Man Club has been in such demand in Scarborough we have been looking for another site for some time.  Thanks to the generosity of Saint Cecilia’s, we can now make this a reality.  This will provide access to support for even more men in the Scarborough area and will no doubt transform and even save lives.  We are very grateful to the Padgham family for making this happen.

“At Andy’s Man Club there is no charge for attending, there is no need to book and you don’t need to be referred.  Just turn up from 6:30pm for a free cuppa for a 7pm start.  You don’t have to say anything until you are ready and you will not be judged.  Please give us a try.”
