Drinkaware at National Ploughing Championships 2017

  posted on

The Drinkaware team is set for a busy three days at this year’s National Ploughing Championships (19-21 September) in Screggan, Tullamore, Co. Offaly. We look forward to welcoming attendees to our stand in the Health and Wellness tent during the week, where they can learn the key facts about alcohol and its effect on health and wellbeing.

We will also be handing out free resources including our Standard Drink Measure Cup and Drinks Calculator Wheel, which features nutritional information about alcohol including calorie and sugar content. The team will also be on hand to provide parents with the facts about underage drinking and advice and support to help to start an informed conversation about alcohol with their children. Over 30,000 people have used our online Drinks Calculator to find out the true impact of their average alcohol intake over the past six months. Visitors to our stand will be offered the chance to use the calculator and our other online tools.

Niamh Gallagher, CEO of Drinkaware, said:

“The Drinkaware team is thrilled to be attending the National Ploughing Championships for the first time this year. This is a fantastic opportunity to engage directly with people from communities across the country. We are encouraging people to visit our stand throughout the week where you can ask us questions, try out our alcohol consumption tracking tools and get resources to help you better understand your drinking habits. Making small changes to how you consume alcohol can make a real difference in the short and long-term.”

You will find the Drinkaware stand at Block 2, Row 29, Stand 644, Unit 34, in the Dunamaise & Nore - Health & Wellness tent.

We look forward to seeing you in Screggan!
