Local MP meets student mentors visiting Parliament to discuss smoking prevention initiatives

3rd May 2012

Local MP Jonathan Djanogly met three students from St. Peter’s School Huntingdon, with Anni Matthew, Assistant Head Teacher and Ellen Nicholson, Health Improvement Specialist, NHS Cambridgeshire on Thursday 26 April, as part of the Kick Ash campaign to reduce smoking in the under 16s across Cambridgeshire and to explain the importance of plain packaging for all cigarettes.

Jonathan Djanogly said:
“I was very impressed not only with the St. Peter’s students knowledge of the subject and the damage smoking can do, but also their willingness to engage with other children and adults to promote their important campaign for young people to be smoke free.”

Kick Ash is a programme led by young people to reduce smoking in the under 16s across Cambridgeshire.
Kick Ash aims to:

  • Encourage all young people to be proud to be smoke free
  • Discourage young people from starting to smoke
  • Support those who want to quit smoking through providing young people friendly stop smoking services
  • Prevent under age tobacco sales

The Programme works with secondary schools across Cambridgeshire and their partner primary schools. Young mentors are recruited to lead the work in their schools and the wider community.
