Stoptober campaign visit cancelled

Published on 06 October 2016

A PLANNED Stoptober advice roadshow in the city today has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

The Leicester City Stop Smoking Service were due to be staffing a ‘Time to Switch’ campaign bus on Humberstone Gate, outside Primark, from 10am to 4pm, on Thursday, October 6.

However, the roadshow will now not be taking place.

The Stoptober campaign is a national initiative to encourage smokers to quit during October. Research shows that smokers who can successfully kick the habit for a month boost their chances of quitting permanently five-fold.
