Say No in November

No In November logo on blue

Addiction to drugs or alcohol is not something that all of us can relate to, but there are foods that we are more addicted to than we realise.  By sacrificing a cappuccino, latte, chocolate bar or carrot cake you experience momentarily the self control that is needed to say no and in a small way empathise with those resisting drug and alcohol addiction. Follow the instructions below and encourage your friends to do likewise.

This will be a challenging and interesting year as we remodel our service in light of the funding challenges and changes to the benefit system.
