STAY CUTE & DILUTE - ONE PUNCH CAN KILL

Chesterfield Street Pastors were happy to lend support to a campaign launched by Yvonne Henchcliffe in memory of her son Chris.  He was out in Chesterfield in July 2016 when an alcohol fuelled incident lead to one punch which caused his death.

Yvonne H says “We aren’t telling people don’t drink,” she said, “We’re just saying to take it steady and dilute in between drinks rather than pre-loading. Enjoy the night and make sure that your children come home, rather than what happened to Chris."

Chesterfield Street Pastors carry bottled water which helps to rehydrate people and counteract some of the effects of alcohol - including the morning after hangover!

The campaign is supported by the police, taxi firms and local MP Toby Perkins.
