What is it?
'Hydrate for 8 & Donate' programme involves participants replacing their intake of alcohol, tea, coffee and soft drinks with water for the period of 8 days and donating their savings to Bray Lions Club charities.

The programme runs from Sat 8th - Sat 15th April inclusive.

Why should I Participate?
Professor Donal O'Shea (Obesity Specialist) says

"Many of the drinks we consume such as, coffee, tea, alcohol and fizzy drinks can have negative effects. These effects include weight gain, poor concentration and low mood especially when taken in larger quantities. In the case of alcohol and sugar sweetened drinks there are clear links between the amounts consumed and serious health problems such diabetes, strokes, cancer and heart disease.

It is important for good health that we control our intake of these drinks. In addition not only is drinking water instead of tea, coffee, alcohol and soft drinks very beneficial to our health, it also makes you feel better."

Programmes such as Hydrate for 8 and Donate can help people take back control over their beverage intake and begin to experience again the benefits of healthy living."

While enjoying the health benefits of the programme you will also be supporting Bray Lions Club charities.

How do I Participate?
Participants must register on the form below.
The latest date for registration is Friday 7th April 2017.

How much might I Save/Donate?
We will leave that calculation up to you. Potential savings, however, are significant when you think that an alcoholic drink in a pub costs on average Euro 5, a cup of tea/coffee outside the home Euro 1.50- Euro 3.00, a soft drink Euro 1-2. (Savings on drinks consumed at home are obviously less.) Why not pick a value of a certain amount per day that you are saving (i.e Euro 5 - 10) to donate?

At the end of the 8 days you may well be surprised at the number of cups of tea or coffee, soft drinks or alcohol you have avoided.
