My first New Year’s resolution? I’m giving up alcohol. For January. For Cancer Research UK. I’m becoming a Dryathlete. This cause means a lot to me as both my fiance and my father were diagnosed with cancer during 2012. Thankfully they are both doing OK now, but I would really like to raise some serious cash to further research into this horrid disease. If we can raise £310, that's £10 a day for the month. Please help me do it? With the exception of one night, my Hen night, 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 too: as I plan to drink on one day in the month, I’ll extend my dry month by a day and as well as that I will also donate £15. Cheers, Mary xx 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.
