Last updated at 12:49, Friday, 18 October 2013
Workington pupils will meet a Super League rugby player as part of a scheme to talk about underage drinking.
Glenn Riley, who plays for Warrington Wolves, will meet youngsters from years nine, 10 and 11 of St Joseph’s School as part of an alcohol education roadshow on Wednesday.
The pupils have designed underage drinking posters and the best will go up in pubs and clubs across West Cumbria.
The three winners from each group will receive an iPod and three runners-up will get free admission to Workington Leisure Centre for six months.
Mr Riley is the guest speaker and police officers, and representatives from the Rising Sun Trust, Inspira, Trading Standards and the ambulance and fire service will speak about the harm that alcohol can do.
