SHAAP Parliamentary exhibition 22-24 November 2022
From Tuesday 22 November to Thursday 24 November 2022, SHAAP hosted an exhibition in the Scottish Parliament sponsored by Paul O’Kane MSP.
This exhibition gave us the opportunity to explain to MSPs the purpose of our ‘Calling Time’ campaign, which showcases our call to the Scottish Government to implement a ban on alcohol sponsorship of sport. We had the opportunity to engage with MSPs across all parties, and gained cross-party support for the campaign as a result.
To learn more about the cross-party support we received and to see the MSPs who are supporting our campaign "Calling Time" to ban alcohol sponsorship in sports, please visit our Political Reactions page: Political Reactions (shaap.org.uk)
As well as promoting our ‘Calling Time’ campaign, the exhibition gave us the opportunity to showcase our wider work, including our recent report on LGBTQ+ individuals and alcohol services in Scotland, our alcohol and cancer guidance, and briefings on Minimum Unit Pricing and alcohol duty.
