Lycra stunt to raise alcohol awareness

A TEAM of lycra-clad freerunners will be performing routines in Darlington town centre tomorrow (Saturday, February 23) to highlight the health dangers of alcohol.

The unusual approach is being taken by Balance, the North-East alcohol office, to draw attention to the health harms associated with drinking too much and to help people understand how alcohol units can sneak up on them.

The freerunners will be wearing brightly coloured suits to resemble the characters in the Government’s Change4Life campaign and will be performing acrobatic flips, press ups, star jumps and fitness routines.

They will be in Northgate between 11am and 3pm.

What? F*ck that. The George opens at 11am and I'll be in there having a few beers, watching the sport, enjoying the craick. First round is on me if anyone is up for it.

Good luck with the star jumps girls, don't get too cold now.
