Pioneer Lenten Challenge 2011

2011lentenchallenge1Have you True Grit to take on the Pioneer Challenge 2011!

Now is a good time to get ready to Reduce or Abstain from alcohol for Lent.  In the next few days you can decide how you can do this and be ready for Ash Wednesday 9th March.

It’s a great time to do some Spring Cleaning in our lives, to make a few changes. Many people give up or take on different challenges at this time and we in the Pioneer Association are challenging you to give some thought to cut down on your intake of alcohol for Lent.

The launch of ‘ Pioneer  Challenge 2011’ took place, at the UCC Climbing wall in the Mardyke Arena. In this wonderful venue, people of all ages are challenging themselves daily, individually or with others in team sports.   People are learning new skills, stretching their potential across a whole range of activities.

2011lentenchallenge2This is the pioneer vision: to build a society where people live to their full potential and where alcohol can be enjoyed in moderation avoiding the fall-out that arises in society from alcohol abuse.
