Cobblers teams up with NHS Northamptonshire to help Northants smokers quit

Posted: 14/06/10 by Northampton Town Football Club

NHS Northamptonshire and Northampton Town Football Club have joined forces to offer a completely new way of helping people in the county to stop smoking.

The two organisations will hold ‘Kick It!’ group meetings at the Sixfields Stadium from Thursday 24 June 2010 for seven weeks. During the sessions, expert Stop Smoking Advisors will provide free and friendly advice and support to give smokers what they require to quit and lead a healthier lifestyle. Those that take part in the programme will also receive free nicotine replacement therapy for the duration of their support.

On Week Three participants will receive a goody bag containing football related memorabilia and stop smoking materials. After five weeks, they will also get to meet a member of the Cobblers team or coaching staff, who will offer advice on maintaining motivation, staying healthy and some of the key benefits of quitting. At the end of the seven weeks, if the participants have been successful in quitting smoking, they will be entered into a prize draw to win two tickets and passes into the Players’ Lounge for a Cobblers match.

How to sign up

The next Kick It! group starts on Thursday 24 June 2010 and there are currently two times to choose from: 6pm - 7pm or 7pm - 8pm. Spaces are limited. Book by calling 0845 601 3116 or sending an email to smokefree@northants.nhs.uk
