THE Christmas holidays are being used to target young people with a new anti-drugs and alcohol campaign.
Palma city council launched the new initiative, with the slogan “there are lots of nights to come”, yesterday. The campaign is going to run until January 19, the Sant Sebastian fiesta when the city celebrates its patron saint. Over the next three weeks, over 10'000 leaflets highlighting the dangers of drugs and alcohol are going to be handed out by volunteers at Palma's most popular night spots. The message is that, while the Christmas holidays and parties are here, be careful as there are many more to come in the future. The council will also continue with its car-sharing campaign with a host of prizes to be won by drivers who do not drink and drive in order to act as the “driver” for the night. The prizes will be awarded on January 18.
This year, a national awareness campaign has been launched across Spain alerting young people to the dangers of drugs and alcohol. In order to ensure the maximum levels of safety and security in the city, a special 73-strong Local Police Christmas patrol is on duty throughout the festive period.
