Time to get shirty; MAILBAG.

I AM writing to tell your readers about an action day called Sport Shirt to Work Day that takes place on Friday, June 26.

Whatever your team, whatever your sport, you can pay pounds 2 to wear your favourite sport shirt to work or school on this day to support leading addiction charity, Action on Addiction.

Get Shirty About Addiction so why not organise a special sporting event to raise awareness about addiction and promote sport as a healthy way to prevent or combat addiction problems.

Get inspired. Organise a football tournament, a yoga initiation or just a game of rounders in the park - anything that will get your friends and colleagues active! Addiction affects one in three people in the UK and more young people are drinking and taking drugs than ever before.

Action on Addiction is the only UK charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional education and family support.

To register your school or business to take part in Sport Shirt to Work Day contact Beckett on 0207 793 1011, e-mail beckett.vester@actiononaddiction.org.uk or visit www.sportshirt.org.uk NICK BARTON Chief Executive for Action on Addiction
