What's Your New Year's Resolution?

Publish Date: 20/12/2012

A New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. What will yours be?

Here LGF staff share their personal New Year's resolutions:

James "My plan is to get fit as I will be doing The BUPA Manchester 10k in May for The LGF"

Sarah "I want to eat better and be fitter and healthier!"

David "I want to buy more clothes and treat myself in 2013!"

Kathy "I want to go to the Theatre more"

Samantha "I'll be going 'dry' for January and reducing my alcohol consumption - and getting sponsored for it so the money goes to a good cause"
