“We created Talk Club to get men talking so they can become mentally fit. So creating a shirt that starts a conversation has got to be a win. We're all on the same team in the fight against men’s mental ill health and we should all be United in mental fitness.”
Ben Akers, Co-Founder, Talk Club.
“Bristol Rovers Community Trust are delighted to support and sponsor Talk Club. The idea of mental fitness resonated with us as a football club, so much so, that we now run our own weekly Bristol Rovers Talk Club sessions at the Memorial Stadium. We are honoured to see the clubs branding represented on the shirt sleeve. As a football club we recognise that mental health knows no colours and are delighted that Bristol City have also joined us
in supporting this life saving charity.”
