SMOKERS in Worcestershire were given help to stamp out the habit as part of last week's national No Smoking Day.

Social enterprise Mytime Active held roadshows in Worcester, Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Redditch on Wednesday, March 12 giving hundreds of people advice on how to quit.

The organisation's senior manager Anna Skeats said she was pleased to be able to support the event run by the British Heart Foundation.

“No Smoking Day is a great opportunity for us to encourage and support smokers in Worcestershire to quit alongside hundreds of thousands of other people across the UK," she said.

“We know that quitting isn’t easy but we want to reassure smokers that support is available to them and show them they can win the battle against cigarettes.

“There’s a much higher chance of succeeding with support and this is why Mytime Active is spreading the word to smokers about the range of services and resources which are locally available to them.

"Our activity is crucial to helping smokers on the road to victory and towards a healthier and wealthier smoke-free life.”
