#DontDrinkAndDrown


This January, YUSU are supporting the Royal Life Saving Society UK’s #DontDrinkAndDrown Campaign. The campaign will raise awareness of the dangers of being near water after a night out and when under the influence of alcohol.

Did you know that York is the 2nd highest nation in the country for drownings involving intoxication? With the colder months and the return to York nightlife, we are urging you to keep away from the river on your night out. Stay safe by:

  • Sticking as a group with your friends

  • Don’t wander off alone

  • Check to make sure your friends get home safe

  • Don’t risk taking shortcuts home

  • Avoid walking by the river at night

We want to make sure that York students are safe. Keep an eye out for our promotional material throughout the month in our bars, and in the city centre.
