Midcounties has teamed up with Fairgame theatre to create the Friday night alcohol awareness project. We offered a DVD and education pack to schools and local community groups to raise awareness amongst young people (http://www.midcounties.coop/news/its-a-rap-at-alcohol-education-workshop/).Our target next year is to send the DVD and education package to 200 schools. In addition, we have completed 9 out 10 enhanced education packages, which included relevant colleagues going into schools to present and educate on the topic.The Midcounties Co-operative is part of Co-operative Retail Trading Group (CRTG) and, working with them, we are committed to selling alcohol responsibly and actively participate in the development of community alcohol partnerships throughout our trading area.
