Stockport Spidey launches anti-bullying campaign – can you help?

Stockport Spidey launches anti-bullying campaign – can you help?
Andrew Baldock, who you may know as one of the Stockport Spider-Men, is launching an anti-bullying campaign for Stockport’s young people. 

Andrew is also a coach at Jason Baird’s Black Belt Academy which is owned and ran by the other Stockport Spider-Man. Together Stockport’s Spidermen kept the children of Stockport entertained during the Covid-induced lockdowns in 2020 and 2021, at the same time raising thousands of £££s for charity, including for Papyrus, in the prevention of young suicide.

Andrew explains why he is once again using his Spiderman persona to highlight his campaign: 
“Bullying is still a major problem and I’m planning on taking Spidey into school’s to talk about this important issue. If all goes well I can expand it by going into other places and doing meet and greets at events.
“I myself suffered terribly with bullying as a child which also continued until I was 18. While it didn’t stop completely I was able to overcome it when I gained confidence learning martial arts. My hope is that by Spidey talking to kids we can put a stop to bullying at an early age.”
Andrew, aka Spidey, is looking for schools, councillors and local organisations to help him reach as many people as possible: 
“I’m initially thinking of doing one visit per week which I can review depending on how things go. There’s no cost for me to do this as I’m doing it as my own personal goal of 2022 to combat bullying. I would like to create some posters to promote the campaign and stickers to give to kids at talks so if anyone can help with that that would be great.”
