Andy's Man Club is uniting with Barrow AFC to launch a new event in the area later this year.

On Saturday, the club announced that it would be hosting its first fully inclusive family event, which is set to take place on August 11 at the SO Legal Stadium between 3pm and 10pm.

A spokesperson from the club said: "We're looking at hosting like minded organisations that can offer various support to our community. 

"We'll have fun activities for all ages and, to finish the day in style, some top musical treats."

Organisers are now on the look out for other groups to get involved, with those interested asked to get in touch via the Facebook page.

Andy's Man Club offers a free-to-attend peer-to-peer support group in Barrow, with the nationwide charity being named after Andrew Roberts, who took his own life aged 23 in 2016.
