FREE soft drinks for designated drivers
WE’RE TACKLING DRINK DRIVING OVER THE FESTIVE SEASON & OFFERING FREE SOFT DRINKS TO DESIGNATED DRIVERS Last week we launched our designated driver campaign in support the Greater Manchester Police’s annual Christmas campaign. All designated drivers who take a trip to our venue throughout December over the festive period can get free soft drinks all evening. We care deeply about the safety of our customers and we want to do all we can to make sure they get home safely. Operations Manager Adam Shepherd says “ We are keen to show our support to this campaign, whilst we like to encourage people to enjoy themselves over the festive period, we need to hold some responsibility for the safety of our customers. If more people were to follow suit then we would be well on our way to a safer city.” Since the campaign went live we’ve had coverage in the M.E.N and been mentioned on Key 103 and Heart North West. The drink driving pandemic has been a well documented one in the Greater Manchester area as being a serious problem. According to official police records, children as young as 12 have been caught drink driving in the region. Figures published last year by Greater Manchester Police show that 464 arrests were made during December 2015. The Greater Manchester police’s seasonal campaign 'None For The Road' has encouraged drivers to avoid having even one drink before getting behind the wheel.
