Alcohol Awareness Week 2015

More than 9 million people in England drink more than the recommended daily limits yet an estimated 7.5 million people are unaware of the damage their drinking could be causing.

This week is National Alcohol Awareness week, aimed at getting people thinking and talking about the effects of alcohol on us, our loved ones, and our community.
