Stop smoking drop-in clinic held at Highbury earlier this month
Working alongside Lancashire Stop Smoking Staff we held a stop smoking drop-in clinic for the community to help ‘Kick the Habit’.
The afternoon was well attended with staff nurses performing a lung age & Carbon Monoxide test to all those that visited the drop-in. Those that wished to quit smoking were advised on the best way to quit smoking, and the effects it can have on your health if continuing to smoke.
Supporting the clinic was Chief Executive, Steve Curwood, and Fleetwood Town Player Chris Maxwell.
Although Chris is not a smoker he took part in the test with positive results, he commented on the clinic.
He said: “ Smoking is a big issue and slowly people are being made aware of the damages it can do to their health. I have fortunately never been surrounded by smokers but clinics like these that the Community Trust have put on are helping to raise the awareness and the health risks linked with smoking and making people change their lifestyle’.
The Community Trust continue its hard work within the community in helping to create a healthier lifestyle for people.
