SOUTHWOLD brewer Adnams has teamed up with a drug and alcohol information service to highlight the dangers of binge drinking to young people.

Youth Team Workers from advisory service NORCAS will be giving out six different alco-cards – information cards complete with facts and consequences associated with young people drinking – to young people in Suffolk this summer.

According to NORCAS, more government funding is spent on drug education than teaching young people the hazards of drinking, and it is this imbalance NORCAS and Adnams would like to redress at a country level.

Chairman Simon Loftus said: "We believe that when used sensibly, alcohol has many positive benefits and that good beer and good wine can be an enjoyable part of life.

"However, we also recognise that the abuse of alcohol can have a hugely damaging effect on individuals concerned and on society as a whole. Clearly there are additional risk factors for young people that are experimenting with alcohol.

"For this reason we are working with NORCAS to promote sensible drinking. This is an ongoing relationship that has developed over a number of years – we regularly seek their valuable advice on many aspects of our business."
