set up the charity to help men to realise that it is not about being
too manly to deal with the condition and to recognise the symptoms and
take steps to deal with it. When it comes to depression, the figures are

with an average of 13 suicides per day. We provide accessible
information directed towards men that they can relate to. Whether

A town is marking this year's 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World
War I with a giant tribute. A large W`W`1 has been marked into a field
on the Chevin, overlooking Belper in Derbyshire. It's part of a project
involving the Royal British Legion and the town council. And it's been
sown with millions of poppy seeds, which it's hoped will flower this
summer. Crowds braved the rain today to
watch dozens of hardy competitors jump 40 feet into the River Dove in
Derbyshire. The Mapleton Bridge Jump near Ashbourne is a traditional New
Year's Day celebration. It sees 20 pairs of competitors raft down the
river before jumping off the bridge and sprinting to a nearby pub. This
year's winners were George Ditchfield and Terry Brown.
It's the third time I've done it and we've won it three times. Why do you
do this? Because it's there. Like Everest. This is my fifth year on
the trot. Every year a different costume. The locals make everyone
welcome. It brings everyone out even on days like this.
