“Paul Pugh has received a national award at the House of Lords for tackling underage drinking with his Paul’s Pledge campaign.

Paul received the Chairman’s Award from the Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) chair Derek Lewis.

Mr Lewis said: “Paul visits schools, colleges and youth clubs to raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of alcohol-fuelled violence.

“Paul spent two months in a coma after being assaulted in Ammanford when he was on a quiet night out with friends. In 2014 he launched Paul’s Pledge with Dyfed-Powys Police to raise awareness and warn about the effect that such violence can have on individuals and their families.”
