Story

My New Year’s resolution? I’m giving up alcohol. For January. For Cancer Research UK. I’m becoming a Dryathlete. All through January I’m not going to touch alcohol. Not a drop. So instead of buying me a drink, I’d like you to donate. Every pound helps Cancer Research UK bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. I’ll be donating my drinking money and if I happen to slip off the wagon, I’ll chuck in an extra £15 to make up for it. Cheers. The Dryathlete’s Oath I promise that I shall take part in Dryathlon™, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern it, committing myself to a month without alcohol, in the true spirit of do-gooding, for the glory of Dryathletes and the honour of Cancer Research UK.

31 days without a drink and almost £200 raised. It's been a worthwhile experience for an amazing cause, and one I'd have struggled to do without you. If you'd like to help, click donate on the right or you can Text DRYJ62 £3 (or £1 or £5 or £10 (you get the idea!))

I am absolutely astonished by the support I've had before I've even started and will have to up my target already! This is for those that you and I've known who have been affected by this. I cannot thank you enough!

Breaking the habit of a lifetime sitting here on a Friday without an alcoholic drink! Instead, I'm donating the cost of a bottle of a wine I'd have!
