A group that stands tall both literally and figuratively is what ‘Tallmen Sanmanassu Group’ is all about. This newly formed group is carving a niche for itself as it is not merely a bunch of well-built hefty men but a group of philanthropists who are out to serve the society. This charitable group based in Kochi is led by Shibu Thumboor, the former chief captain of the executive force of the Kerala Tall Men’s Association (KTMA).

“The main aim in forming such a group is to give service oriented aid to society. The motto of our executive force is to bring out festive occasions with joy and security. And for special occasions, a ‘women’s special executive group’ has also been formed.

The group which is active in the social service scene, also aims to extend their services to old-age homes and provide free ambulance service. Shibu says, “We are aiming to spare atleast 30 percent of our wages for the needy section of the society.” Other executive members of the group are Daison Kalleli, Jamshi, Riyas, Titas Angamali,  Sunni and Ansar. 

All those who have 180 cm height can enrol as the members of ‘Tallmen Sanmanassu Group’. Those who are interested contact 9946562828.
