Beat the bottle

WOMEN in Wigan suffering from alcoholism can now turn to a support group for help beating the bottle.

The Willow Project supports those who are living with an alcoholic and struggling to cope as well.

A spokeswoman for the project said: “Women who are struggling to control their drinking also need support from people who understand what they are going through.”

Free and confidential services are held across Wigan where women can go to receive support from people who know what they are going through.

If you feel you would benefit from the project then you can ring the information line on 01942 679300 or visit the website
