    THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

    HEALTH BENEFITS



    Have you ever put your recycling out and wondered how you managed to get through so many bottles of wine and beer in only one week? Or maybe you have suffered from one too many mid-week hangovers. If so, Parch is a great opportunity for you to take a look at your drinking habits. Reducing your alcohol intake has loads of feel-good benefits. It’s good for your health, great for your relationships and the good news is there are many ways to cut down in a practical and achievable way.

    GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES

    Alcohol

    The government advises that people should not regularly drink more than the daily unit guidelines of 3-4 units of alcohol for men (equivalent to a pint and a half of 4% beer) and 2-3 units of alcohols for women (equivalent to a 175 ml glass of wine).”Regularly” means drinking every day or most days of the week.

    KIDS HEALTH BENEFITS

    Kids

    If you stop drinking fizzy drinks for the month of March your dentist will be very pleased with you. Fizzy drinks can damage the enamel on your teeth, cause cavities, and can also add to weight gain.

    FINANCIAL BENEFITS

    Pound

    An average person will spend £3000 per annum on alcohol, so by cutting back or abstaining during the month of March will save you a significant sum. Some of this money can be donated to the Andrew Grene Foundation to provide fresh drinking water for our students – so it’s a win, win situation and everyone gains from it!
