Skye man’s mes­sage on the dan­gers of al­co­hol

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

AN ISLE of Skye man on a mis­sion to warn of the dan­gers of al­co­hol has been speak­ing in Fort Wil­liam. As re­ported in The Oban

Times in March, Alis­ter McKin­non, who grew up in El­gol, set up the North Sea Gar­den Mis­sion: The Way to So­bri­ety pro­gramme to help al­co­holics and warn young­sters of the dan­gers of drink.

Alis­ter, who was an al­co­holic him­self, spoke at a sem­i­nar in Kil­mallie last week about his experiences and his so­bri­ety pro­gramme which he has trav­elled all over the world with.

Alis­ter said: ‘I am a re­cov­ered al­co­holic and haven’t touch the stuff for 28 years now.

‘I want to raise the aware­ness of ad­dic­tion in the High­lands and in­form peo­ple about what it can do to your body.’

When he’s not tour­ing the states on his mis­sion, Alis­ter is driv­ing around Scot­land in his car, which he just had newly branded with his slo­gan ‘so­bri­ety changes lives’ and web­site ad­dress.

Alis­ter McKin­non will be tour­ing the High­lands to warn peo­ple about the dan­gers of al­co­hol.
