Hanging Up The Hangover For Charity: alldayPA Does Dry January
Everyone’s favourite month is already in full flow. January is the month we resign to becoming better people and bettering ourselves through hard work and resolve. It is also possibly the least fun thirty-one days of the year. The cold weather, dark nights and darker mornings can make just getting out of bed a big achievement.
What better to make January that little bit more exciting than to give up alcohol for the entire month?
So thinks the team at alldayPA anyway…
Customer Service and Marketing Executives, Charlotte and Tori, have pledged to take up their gauntlets and fill them with water as they will be strictly alcohol-free until 1st February. Rest assured, however, that they are not just doing this for their health! They will be taking sponsorship from colleagues, friends, family members and even blog readers in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK, Huntington’s Disease Association and Barnardo’s.
“I’ve always pitied the fools who did dry January,” says Marketing Executive Tori, “And now I pity myself! But it’s for a brilliant cause and I love a challenge.”

The Huntington’s Disease Association partnered with alldayPA throughout December 2014.

The charity exists to support the people affected by the disease and to provide information for healthcare professionals providing support to families.
