FIVE Bendigo identities are about to embark on a beer and wine drought.

Paul DeAraugo from Bendigo Toyota, Bendigo Health construction manager Adam Hardinge, Bendigo Bank's Mark Boyd-Graham, Lend Lease site manager Rob McGregor and Wild Plumbing’s Ray Wild will turn off the taps and fly the flag as Bendigo Health's Dry July ambassadors.

The campaign encourages people to give up the booze and raise money for adults living with cancer. Money raised for Bendigo Health is earmarked to go towards the refurbishment of the Nolan Street cancer patient accommodation units. 

Bendigo Health registered with Dry July for the first time last year with its efforts raising more than $90,000.

Boort farmer Neil Beattie managed to raise $40,000 last year by giving up his beloved Carlton Draught, naming Bendigo Health as his his beneficiary.
