Why not try

Being Responsible

We recognise that for some students in social gatherings, the consumption of alcohol is an expected and enjoyable element to proceedings, however we also appreciate that this is not the case for many students. We are also mindful of the harm and health damage that alcohol misuse can cause, and we are committed to providing sports captains with appropriate knowledge on the potential harm this may have. For more information please read our Sports Club Events Policy.
