Today I’ve started taking part in Sober October. It’s to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support – http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Home.aspx – a charity that I’ve done sponsored events for in the past.
So, no alcohol will pass my lips for the month of October. As a fan of real ale and single malts, this isn’t going to be fun, but it’s nothing compared to the struggle that people with cancer face every day. A side effect is I’ll probably lose a bit of the waistline, which is no bad thing (as long as it’s not too much or my kilt won’t fit!!)
Anyway, if you’d like to donate, the link to my fundraising page is below.
