Council launches anti-drugs initiative

The Council has teamed up with Charlton Athletic striker Darren Bent to promote an anti-drugs campaign over the summer. According to the Council, Bent's image and a legend saying "Get your natural high from sport" will appear on 15 bus shelters around the borough. The posters will have contact details for advice and information. The Council is also printing 30,000 credit card sized cards with the same image and information on it to hand out throughout the summer.

We think any drug education campaigns are highly commendable. We are concerned though that 15 bus shelters is probably less than 1% of the total shelters in the Borough. Surely more posters and less credit card sized cards would have been better? We don't want to be misunderstood though. We think this is a worthy initiative by the Council of which they should be praised, we just wonder if it could've been done even better than it has.
