The collaboration between the Tigers Trust, Hull City, and McVities created meaningful conversation in anticipation of Time to Talk Day on February 1st. Together, as we hosted a welcoming coffee morning at the Tigers Trust Arena on Monday 29th January, creating an atmosphere of connection and camaraderie. 
Time to Talk Day holds significant importance as it serves as a platform to encourage conversations surrounding mental health. This annual event endeavours to dismantle the barriers of stigma that often shroud mental health challenges, creating an environment of empathy and understanding. 
The coffee morning served as a delightful gathering, bringing together session participants, including our Walking Footballers from the Tigers Trust and Hull City supporters. Against the backdrop of delicious brews and McVities biscuits, attendees relished the opportunity to forge connections and take in the lively atmosphere. 
Moreover, the event provided an insight into the Tigers Trust's captivating memorabilia project, a collaborative effort with the Senior Tigers. This exhibit, featuring vintage shirts, photographs, and programmes, served as a catalyst for engaging discussions, shedding light on the Senior Tigers' commitment to preserve Hull City's illustrious history through the collection of club artifacts. 
A highlight of the morning was a valuable workshop, expertly facilitated by Hull & East Yorkshire Mind, offering participants a dedicated space to explore various facets of their well-being and address mental health concerns which occur in today's society. 
The morning's event was enriched by the presence of Hull City legends John Hawley, Stan McEwan, and Tom Wilson. They captivated the audience with nostalgic tales from the Boothferry Park era, enhancing the occasion with their engaging stories and cherished memories. 
We were also delighted to welcome the High Sheriff of East Riding of Yorkshire, Christina Cerutti, who underscored the profound impact of community engagement initiatives, like this one hosted at the Tigers Trust Arena, in combatting loneliness and isolation among older individuals. Hosting events of this nature was hailed as a meaningful avenue to effect positive change within the local community. 
Speaking about the event the Tigers Trust’s CEO Catherine Bishop said: “The Trust was delighted to be joined by the High Sheriff of East Riding of Yorkshire for the Coffee Morning sponsored by Mcvities to raise awareness of the Tigers Trust’s memorabilia and heritage project we are developing with the Senior Tigers and fan groups to get the nation talking #timetotalk. 
This important project aims to support those experiencing loneliness and isolation whilst also celebrating Hull City football heritage. The event was very well attended by our Hull City ex-players, Walking Footballers, Senior Tigers, supporters and some of our participants. The Trust looks forward to delivering more events in the future.”
