empty wine glasses to show going sober for october

What is Go Sober for October?

Go Sober for October is an annual fundraising campaign that raises money for MacMillan Cancer Research.

It’s a challenge that MacMillan organise and it invites drinkers to stop drinking for the 31 days in October and to make some healthy lifestyle changes for the month - all at the same time as raising money for a good cause.

MacMillan are a cancer charity who offer information and support (physical, financial and emotional) to people and families affected by cancer. But they also do much more than this: they’re involved in cancer research, cancer education and awareness and training for professionals working with cancer.

They fundraise in lots of different ways - Go Sober for October is just one of them.

The idea is that you:

  1. Sign up for the Go Sober challenge
  2. Enjoy a booze-free month
  3. Raise funds through being sponsored to do it
  4. Help people with cancer - become a Soberhero!

This year, Appletiser is the Go Sober for October headline partner and is supporting the challenge by providing a range of mocktail recipes.

Note: If you are physically dependent on alcohol, you need to consult with a doctor or medical specialist before you stop drinking to ensure that you detox your body safely.

If you’re interested in getting involved and taking up the challenge, you can find out more on the Go Sober for October website here. Be a Soberhero and make a real difference for Macmillan Cancer Support by signing up to Go Sober for October.
