A charity that has been set up in Lynn to support men and their mental health is hosting its first Men's Time event tonight.

The 8:56 Foundation, set up in memory of Lee Calton, will be hosting a get together for men to bring them together through sport.

The aim is to improve their mental health and reduce the risk of loneliness and isolation.

"We will be holding a tenpin bowling evening at Strikes in Lynn, with two games of bowling, bar meal and a soft drink included."

The event is for over-18s only.

Bringing men together through sport and socialising is the aim of the 8:56 Foundation to help men talk about mental health. Pictured: Action from the Man v Fat 6-a-side semi-final between both 8:56 Foundation teams.
