Tonic Music for Mental Health ambassador and Dub Pistols vocalist Seanie T has announced he will be hosting a football fundraiser Seanie Tonic FC – aiming to raise £5k in aid of Tonic.


Taking place on August 22nd 2021 at Tonbridge Angels FC, the fundraiser will see Seanie T host a ‘Charity match for Mental Health’, with a 20-strong team of veterans, celebrities, musicians, actors, and artists, including Marcus Gayle (Wimbledon, Watford, and Brentford), Micah Hyde (Coaching staff - Barnett and QPR), actor Shane Attwooll (Films: Wonder Woman 1984, Legend, and Kingdom of Heaven), Artist & Tonic Patron Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols), and Flinty (Ragga Twins). They will be swapping their artistic talents for their prowess on the football pitch when they come up against a team of ex-Tonbridge Angels stars selected by current manager, Steve Mckimm, and previous boss, Tommy Warrilow. The Angels play in the sixth tier of English football and are wholly owned by their supporters.


Supporters can expect a fun-filled family day with evening entertainment (TBA), whilst the raising of awareness for Tonic Music for Mental Health and the Recovery Through Music programme will help Tonic to continue providing free, direct, practical mental health support.


Seanie T, Tonic Music for Mental Health Ambassador


“Since the honour of being made a Tonic Music for Mental Health ambassador, I have thought of various ways to help raise awareness for such a great cause because of all the fabulous work they are doing for people. So, I have taken two things that I love the most in life outside of my family which is Music & Football, and combined them to raise awareness for mental health.


“I have been involved in football since I started playing Sunday league at the age of 6, and I am still coaching now. I am an FA-qualified coach and I have won every major honour in Sunday league football.


“My sons play football so, even when I want to take a break from it, I can’t.


“I’m also making music and touring various parts of the world, and I’m not sure if I can stop to tell the truth. Football and music are my passions, so it makes perfect sense to me to try to put on such an event, with the help of Tonbridge Angels FC, to support Tonic Music for Mental Health and the vital work they do – providing help to people with their wellbeing.”


Dave Netherstreet, Tonbridge Angels FC Chairman


“We are delighted to be supporting such an important charity as Tonic Music for Mental Health. Mental health issues affect people in all walks of life and football is no exception. Whilst we hope everyone will have a lot of fun, behind all of this is the aim of raising valuable funding for a very worthwhile initiative.”

About Tonbridge Angels FC, Longmead Stadium:


Tonbridge Angels is a football club founded in 1948 playing semi-professionally in the Vanarama National League South, the sixth tier of the game in England, which makes the Angels one of the top 150 clubs in the country out of around 8,500. It is owned by its supporters with all revenue ploughed back into running and improving the club – no director takes a penny out of the receipts.


Whilst the first team is the club's flagship, Angels has a thriving youth section with squads at different age levels playing in the Kent Youth League, together with a very successful Academy where scholars can combine the gaining of academic qualifications with improving their natural abilities on the football field.


Embedded in the community, Tonbridge Angels runs a number of events, including an annual Garden Show, Beer Festival and various music gigs in its state-of-the-art functions suite, which is also available for private hire to local residents at very competitive rates. The club has a close relationship with Tonbridge Baptist Church, whose Lead Minister is our Club Chaplain; we support and assist the church in its Sustain Food Bank initiative. Angels in the Community provides Soccer Skills fun days for school children in the local area, with fully qualified coaches attached to the club, and appearances from 1st team players.


Angels Business Club connects organisations in the community directly with the owners and supporters alongside fellow Business Club members. Regular forums are held to exchange ideas with presentations from guest speakers. The club also works closely with leading charities such as Dementia UK, Cardiac Risk in the Young, and Child Autism UK, on a national and local basis to provide a friendly, welcoming and inclusive environment for both watching and taking part in our national game.


Looking to the future, plans are afoot to provide an artificial pitch at our stadium which will allow much greater use to be made of Longmead, with disability, women’s, girl’s and walking teams all contributing to the community effort. In short, Tonbridge Angels will continue to further its aim of being a sporting hub for the town and surrounding areas of West Kent.
