The Cypriot city of Paphos will take part in a charity event to raise awareness of the tragedies caused by drink-driving, for the second year running. “I’d Rather Walk than Drink and Drive” charity walk will take place on Sunday, 5th May at 9am starting from Ayios Nikolaos Church in Geroskipou and concluding at the castle in Kato Paphos and will cover a 5km long course. The aim is to help children, to improve their psychological health and well-being and support programmes that raise awareness and funds for educational and clinical programmes for children facing all sorts of mental health challenges.

More than 250 people took part in 2018 raising funds, announced the Municipality. Everybody can take part and register online. A similar annual event has been organised in Limassol for more than a decade and focuses on reducing the number of accidents caused by people who drive under the influence of alcohol.
