Story

Dry January was set up by the charity Alcohol Concern, to help people take a break from booze.

We encourage people to fundraise for us during their month off. By doing so you can help to make a real difference to the lives of those harmed by alcohol, their families, and help ensure that young people (and the rest of us) have a healthy relationship with alcohol. 

Did you know, for instance, that 93,500 babies under 1 live with a parent who is a problem drinker? And that almost half of young people excluded from school are themselves regular drinkers? 

But the good news is that for every £1 spent on alcohol treatment, £5 is saved on healthcare, policing and other costs to society from alcohol.
