Still time to be a ‘dryathlete’ for charity

Cancer Research UK wants people to give up booze for January.

Cancer Research UK wants people to give up booze for January.

Local people are being urged to ditch the booze and sign up to Cancer Research UK’s New Year fund-raising challenge Dryathlon.

The challenge sees people banish the booze in January for a month and raise vital funds to help beat cancer sooner.

Registration for the challenge ends on Sunday and the charity is urging anyone who hasn’t yet made a New Year’s pledge to sign up now.

‘Dryathletes’ pledge to drop the drink for a month and either get sponsored or donate the money they would have spent on alcohol to the charity.

Supporters can register as individuals or set up a team.

Linda Summerhayes, Cancer Research UK spokesperson in Scotland, said: “We know that giving up alcohol for a month will really test some people’s willpower.

“But raising money for the fight against cancer is fantastic motivation to stay on track.”

To sign up visit the website www.dryathlon.org
