12 December, 2008

The Drinkaware Trust has teamed up with Guinness Premiership rugby clubs to promote responsible drinking

Players from

London Irish launched a campaign called Tips for a Christmas to Remember alongside a Drinkaware black cab, one of 300 taxis displaying advice to partygoers in

Christmas "tip cards" will be given to licensed cab passengers in London, containing practical tips, unit guidelines, and links to a 24-hour ­helpline and drinkaware.co.uk.

Drinkaware's chief executive Chris Sorek said: "Drinkaware is delighted to support

this. By distributing tip cards at rugby fixtures, we hope to offer practical guidance to club fans who want to have a merry - and memorable - Christmas."
