It is time to put the padlock on your drinks cabinet and empty the beer fridge - Dry July has kicked off!
The PA Research Foundation - using funds raised through the Dry July campaign - is helping to make the time spent at the PA Hospital cancer centre as comfortable as possible. To date, Dry July at the PA Hospital has: helped fund free WiFi access for patients, developed an e-Education program to provide up to date information for patients prior to treatment and installed flat screen televisions across cancer services' waiting areas to help pass the time.
Having a month off alcohol also has great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself. It's a win-win!
If you are not a drinker, why not give up something you enjoy such as sugar or coffee for the month of July?
