Alcohol Concern
Alcohol Concern is a national charity working to help reduce the problems that can be caused by alcohol. We do this by helping people with information, advice and support with their questions about drinking and the problems that can sometimes be caused by alcohol. We also help professionals working with people with alcohol problems and we campaign for a different drinking culture. That’s our big aim, to create a society in which alcohol does no harm.

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

As many of you know I'm quite fond of the odd drink or two, okay okay a lot more than that! I'm a big fan of drinks whether it be wine (white, red or rose), espresso martini cocktails, vodka and orange, jagerbombs, champagne...I think you get the point.

Well this January that's all about to change. I am going to refrain from drinking alcohol for a whole month AND the best bit is that it's for a great cause too!

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. I think many of you know this will be quite a challenge for me!

24.01.13 I was thinking you may be struggling a bit around this time of the month - so close to the end, but not quite there. So in order to keep you going, here's the equivilent of what I'd probably spend on a drink in a pub.

24.01.13 Well done Mel. Large glass of wine at 00:01 on the 1st Feb then?!?!?

04.01.13 Good luck x
