eskimosoup are committed to a busy couple of weeks to promote a regional campaign commissioned as part of the National No Smoking Day 2012 programme.
The “Commit to Quit” campaign sees NHS Hull, NHS East Riding and NHS North Lincolnshire join forces with Hull City, Hull FC, Hull KR and Scunthorpe United to help supporters stop smoking and recognise that smoking is not the social norm in our area.
The campaign will use a number of activities to ensure awareness is raised around the Commit to Quit campaign and No Smoking Day, which takes place next Wednesday.
To answer any questions and give fans information on the NHS Stop Smoking services, the Commit to Quit team will be at the at the KC Stadium tonight as Hull City play Leeds Utd. Visiting Bridlington next Monday and Scunthorpe next Wednesday, so make sure you keep an eye out for campaign mascot Cyril the Cig.
These road shows will also inform people about the live league table, which everyone can play a huge part in.
Cyril made an appearance at Hull FC Vs Wakefield Wildcats on Sunday with the club fully behind the campaign; James Clark, head of communications, media and marketing at Hull FC, said: “We are a firm believer in working with the local NHS to send poignant health messages to our loyal supporters and we want them to understand there is support and advice available in the city.
“I’m sure there will be plenty of friendly rivalry and competition between all sets of fans from each club and plenty of ‘healthy’ banter, with a serious underlying health message of quitting smoking.”
