Go Sober for October is an annual fundraising campaign that raises money for MacMillan Cancer Research.
It’s a challenge that invites drinkers to stop drinking for the month of October and make some healthy lifestyle changes at the same time as supporting a good cause.
The advice for heavy drinkers or people physically dependent on alcohol is to speak with their GP before signing up.
You visit the Go Sober for October website where you can sign up.
When you sign up, you’ll be given instructions on what to do and how to do it.
There are downloadable and shareable sponsorship forms or you can set up a Just Giving page to make it easier for friends and family to sponsor you.
You can choose your own fundraising target or you can select one of the options on the site.
