Awww thank you so much! Can I have a drink tonight?! ;-)

My New Year’s resolution? I’m giving up alcohol. For January. For Cancer Research UK. I know. Unbelievable but true!

I’m becoming a Dryathlete.

All through January I’m not going to touch alcohol.

Now, if you know me even slightly well you'll be aware that I like a drink. So this is a fairly hefty challenge for me. I’d love it if you could spare a few pence - the cost of a soft drink will do it!

Every pound helps Cancer Research UK bring forward the day when all cancers are cured - and with one in three people having cancer at some point in their lives you'll agree that it is a very worthy cause.

I’ll be donating the money I would have spent on wine/vodka/whisky/beer etc and if I happen to slip off the wagon, I’ll chuck in an extra £15 to make up for it.


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.


  • Excited about my Dryathon.
