An army of teetotallers is set to benefit from a cheap sickness benefits scheme thanks to those scourges of the demon drink at the Rechabite Friendly Society.
The society demands that its members sign a pledge of abstinence before being able to take advantage of its products.
Despite evidence to show that a couple of glasses of red wine a day can actually improve your health, anyone willing to purge themselves of the temptation to take a drop of the hard stuff can benefit from the society's new sickness scheme.
The scheme provides incapacity benefits ranging from £50-£500 a week.
Premiums start at £3.85 a month for 17-25-year-olds and rise according to age and the amount of cover required.
Rechabite is also launching an endowment fund targeted at the older investor who wants to invest but does not need expensive life cover.
Rechabite has 23,000 members and £11.7m funds under management.
