On the 7th of March the SADD team attended the NGO Connex Day at Varsity College, under the theme “Just Be Responsible”.
A “road” was imagined for the students to walk along while using the Drunk Goggles. They then had to catch a set of keys and put them into a container. Kicking a soccer ball also helped to show how impaired you could be after drinking alcohol.
T-shirts, wristbands, Units of Alcohol cards, and info pamphlets were distributed to the students. We had an extremely good response from the students who were queuing up to have a turn at using the goggles. The non-drinkers wanted to know what it felt like to be drunk, and the heavy drinkers wanted to test their “drinking fitness”.
