I’m a Dry Athlete!

Happy New Year to all my readers! It’s January 1st and most of us are making resolutions. One of mine is to do more to help others, so I thought I’d ask for your support in a bit of fundraising!

I’m taking part in a Dryathlon for Cancer Research. The task sounds easy – no alcohol for all of January – and I’m pretty sure I can do it. I know there’s never much spare change available after the festive season, but if you can spare just a little bit you’ll be helping support a very worthy charity. Just head over to this site and follow the prompts.

Many thanks in advance, and enjoy the rest of the holidays!
