Pinch and a punch for the first of the month… time for a wine!

Dry July is officially over and we made it! Now’s the time to celebrate with a tipple (or two) of your choice and congratulate yourself on going without alcohol for 31 days.

It was another great year of fundraising by supportive kiwis who gave up the drink for a month in order to give back to charities supporting those living with cancer.

2018 saw 6,120 New Zealanders sign up for the cause – an impressive 45% increase on last year’s 4,200.

These fundraisers raised a whopping $619,000 (and still climbing!) in July which was up a huge 57% from 2017.

Meet Shona, Waiora, and Elaine three ladies who have benefitted from the LGFB classes that Dry July has helped fund. Watch their stories here.

Fundraising remains open for the month of August so this figure will continue to grow and will be donated to Look Good Feel Better to help add more classes throughout NZ.
