Please come along and show your support for Alcohol Awareness Week!

Alcoholism and people suffering with addiction with alcohol is on the rise in the UK and the danger we face is staggering, as to is the recovery of such ailments, so raising awareness of these issues is a very important task. I think it would be safe to say we all know at least one person who suffers from drinking too much, whether it’s out and out alcoholism or whether the person hits the weekend pretty hard, we’ve all seen the very real effect it can have on your life and the lives of those around you.
