Tyler Bros link up with the Armchair Club

1st November 2015

As part of Tyler Bros link with the community Andrew Tyler is proud to become a member of the Armchair Club.

The Armchair Club was founded in 1982 when a group of six local businessmen got together to help raise and distribute financial support to the benefit of local sports people. The original six were Barry Gibson, John Slater, John Sankey, Roger Copestake (b.1947- d 2015) , Stewart Rickersey and Maurice Brackenbury (b.1940-d.2013). Today there are sixteen members and they share equally in the responsibility and the satisfaction of continuing in their aim to promote sporting activity in and around the Mansfield area.

In 1982 the need for easily accessible and sensibly controlled financial support for our local sportsmen and women was identified. More than thirty years on, that need still exists.

In that vein Tyler Bros will continue to sponsor events that are hosted by the Armchair Club and look forward to helping our local sports men and women reach for their ambitions.
