It's day 4 of #DryJanuary! Why not do some fundraising for our partner charities, or donate the money you save from not drinking? That way you can help others, whilst doing yourself some good too! https://t.co/mH3dNmkCwE pic.twitter.com/2T0yx5oNCW

Dry January is asking people to ditch the booze for the whole month to improve their health and raise funds for seven charities. Organised by Alcohol Concern, 80% of the money raised goes to its partner charities: Action for Children, Breast Cancer Now, British Liver Trust, Crisis, Hospice UK, and WCRF, and 20% to itself. Alcohol Concern also offers an app to support people through the month and beyond.
