A suicide prevention charity has received a £1,000 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Manchester.

Andy’s Man Club aims to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health for men and has created a judgement-free environment for men to express their feelings and struggles. The charity runs peer-to-peer support groups in Manchester and the surrounding areas, giving men the choice of speaking out or simply attending to listen.

The donation from Amazon will be used to support existing Andy’s Man Club groups whilst enabling them to open in new areas to support as many men as possible across the UK as possible.

Speaking on the donation, Ian Jackson, General Manager at Amazon in Manchester, said:

“The work of Andy’s Man Club is greatly appreciated by communities across the UK, including ours. The charity offers invaluable support for men in Manchester, providing a safe and welcoming space where they can express themselves without judgement. It is our pleasure to make this donation.”

Phil Lamb, an employee at Amazon in Manchester who nominated the charity to receive the donation, added:

“It’s great to see Amazon donate to Andy’s Man Club. The charity’s services are of great benefit to the community, so I am happy that we can lend a helping hand to the charity and its team.”

Joanne, from Andy’s Man club, said:

“On behalf of myself and everyone at Andy’s Man Club, we would like to thank Ian and the team at Amazon in Manchester for their recognition and support. We are very grateful to receive this donation to put towards awareness materials, and to provide venues and refreshments for existing and new clubs.”

The donation to Andy’s Man Club was made as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities in and around its operating locations across the UK.

The company provides students with online STEM courses and has teamed up with charity partner Magic Breakfast to deliver more than six million healthy breakfasts to children at risk of hunger in disadvantaged areas across the UK.
