Gloucestershire pub features in Christmas music video

A pub near Stroud has featured in a Christmas charity single released today.

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has released his own version of Sweet Caroline, to support Talk Club, a men's mental health charity.

The Hog at Horsley hosts it's own Talk Club group every Tuesday and starred in the charity single's music video.

"It is a welcoming and inclusive talking and listening group for men," landlord Luke Honeychurch told the Stroud News & Journal.

"No therapy, no judgments, complete confidentiality.

"The pub isn't open to the public on Tuesdays, but we open our doors to host Talk Club as men's mental health is so often overlooked.

"We've been hosting our own Talk Club here at The Hog since June, and have seen men of all ages and from all walks of life attending.

"The sessions offer a safe space to talk and be heard, without any judgments and consistently prove themselves to help those attending find a sense of community, a sounding board for their feelings and a security blanket when they are at their lowest."

Talk Club was created after one of it's Founders, Ben Akers, lost his childhood best friend, Steve Yates, to suicide in 2014. Struggling to process his grief, Ben set out to make 'Steve', a documentary about male mental health. Talk Club is said to be a legacy of that project.

Tyson Fury released the single in partnership with Talk Club, with 100 per cent of proceeds going to the charity.
