Skye man’s message on the dangers of alcohol
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.
