To date we have secured the following partnerships so far for our 2015 campaign:</p><br /><p>- Coca Cola, who will be running their designated driver campaign, rewarding designated drivers with a buy-one-get-one-free offer on coke drinks in thousands of venues during the festive season.</p><p>- Budweiser who also promote and celebrate the important role of designated driver.</p><p>- Johnnie Walker, who ask drivers to take a pledge to never drink and drive, in return for discounted safe journeys home.</p><br /><p>These initiatives are all completely funded by the partner and add significant value to the campaign.</p><br /><p>We will continue to seek further partnerships with commercial brands who can extend the reach and impact of our campaigns.</p><p><strong></strong></p><p><strong></strong></p>
