Asda Dumbarton and Drinkaware, the alcohol education charity, are working together to provide free information and advice on alcohol to the local community.

The event takes place at the store on Friday 18 January, and will run from 11am to 5pm, (with a short break at 2pm) with a Drinkaware stand set-up at the store to give customers the opportunity to access friendly advice and to ask questions.

The 2019 partnership builds on a successful January 2018 event which saw Drinkaware engage with more than 7,000 Asda customers.

This year will see a particular focus on drink free days, to help encourage middle aged men and women to think about their drinking and to highlight that having more drink-free days can improve their health and reduce risks of serious long-term conditions.
