Martyn’s Monday Club is here to stay despite the sudden resignation of four of its trustees.

The club went online to post ‘We are here and always will be’ after one of its original founders Robert Cruickshanks announced on Facebook that he and three other trustees, including his wife Fiona, had resigned.

Mental health support and suicide prevention group MMC has been keeping up its  work, despite the latest lockdown, running from its Breadalbane Street HQ in Oban – on Monday 14 members attended the men’s group.

The club was named after the Cruickshank’s son Martyn who was 37 when he took his own life in 2018.

Mr Cruickshanks said on Facebook: ‘We would like it to be known, that at a meeting on Friday the 23rd April, the following Trustees resigned from the Board, with immediate effect. Robert Cruickshanks, Fiona Cruickshanks, Carol MacIntyre and Gillian Munro. A further statement will be made in due course.’

Carol MacIntyre is the mother of MMC ambassador and top golfer Robert MacIntyre.

MMC later posted on Facebook: ‘We are here and always will be, all our groups are running as normal and we would love to see new members give us a try.’
