Cyril the Cig has been up to his dirty tricks again!
He's been turning up at regional games and trying to make people follow him, but Cyril got more than he bargained for at every game, with matchgoers uniting to boo and jeer him off the pitch.
Commit to Quit helps people to bin the cigs whilst supporting their team, with fans pledging to quit as part of an online league table.
Our Account Director, Rich Quelch, explained why this campaign is so important:
"It's about raising awareness of the effects of smoking and making people realise that it's actually very easy to quit. There's so much free help and advice out there and so many people to share the journey with. We've had huge support from Hull City, Hull KR, Hull FC and Scunthorpe United, and their followers have made them all very proud."
At the Hull City vs. Leeds United match, Roary the Tiger proved that being fit, strong and healthy is a far better way of enjoying life by playfully pinning Cyril to the ground for the cheering crowd.
The Commit to Quit roadshow visited Hull, North Ferriby, Bridlington and Scunthorpe, spreading the word and encouraging people to stop smoking. The website is available for smokers to quit and non-smokers to help them do it: www.commit-to-quit.co.uk
Remember: After just one year of not smoking, your risk of suffering a heart attack is halved. On top of that, you will have saved an average of £2,372!
