Go Sober for October

Go Sober for October is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. So why not spend October being a Soberhero and go 31 days without alcohol?

Autumn Equinox

While it does mean shorter daylight hours are creeping in and so too is colder weather, it does also mean we can look forward to stunning colours as leaves turn shades of orange, red and yellow, before dropping off for us to rustle through on the footpaths. Then there’s getting warm and cosy indoors, and sitting by a real fire in the pub.

World Heart Day

At the end of this month, on Sunday September 29 it’s World Heart Day – but we’re getting ahead of ourselves and encouraging awareness of good heart health right now. World Heart Day is an awareness event created to get it known that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading cause of death.

More than 800,000 people die by suicide annually. That means one person every 40 seconds ends their life. Suicide is the leading cause of death in people aged 15-24 in many European countries For every one suicide 25 people make a suicide attempt. 135 people are affected by each suicide death. This equates to 108 million people bereaved by suicide worldwide every year.
