Mark announced No One Alone on the pub's social media channels.

He said: "We are all dealing with a challenge of some kind, some of us are just better at hiding it than others.

"I am no counsellor or trained life guru. However, life has tested me hard and I am a good listener. I have been on the ropes a couple of times, and once I hit rock bottom with no lower. Luckily I got up off the canvas.

"Every Monday, I will be sat at table 12 from 6.30pm till 8pm to listen to anyone who needs.

"There may end up being a few of us, there may be just me, but you know we are all there for the same reason. To listen, to laugh, or to lend a shoulder. You are not alone, so do not give up on life.

"We all die.. The goal isn’t to live forever, but to create something that will.
