The Drinkaware team will be in McCabe’s Pharmacy in the Pavilions Shopping Centre in Swords to provide information and advice to customers about their drinking habits from 11am to 2pm on the 7, 14, 21 and 28 July.
We will be handing out free resources including a Standard Drink Measure Cup and Drinks Calculator Wheel, which features nutritional information about alcohol including calorie and sugar content. An alcohol self-assessment scratch-card will be offered to visitors to the stand to complete in their own home. The team will also be on hand to provide parents with the facts about underage drinking and advice to help to start an informed conversation about alcohol with their children.
Over the past six months, more than 35,000 people have checked the real impact of their alcohol intake using tools on our website, including our Drinks Calculator, identifying a need for more support and information in relation to alcohol and health.
Niamh Gallagher, CEO of Drinkaware, said of the initiative with McCabe’s Pharmacy:
“Drinkaware is encouraging people to visit our team at McCabe’s in the Pavilions in Swords throughout the month of July where you can ask us questions, try our alcohol consumption tracking tools and get resources to help you better understand your drinking habits. We also encourage people to visit our website to find out more about the risks associated with frequent binge drinking. Making small changes to how you consume alcohol can make a real difference in the short and long-term.”
We hope to see you there!
