‘No Smoking Day’ urges Scots to quit

With 25% of adults smoking cigarettes, Scotland has the UK’s highest percentage of smokers according to Government statistics.  With this in mind, the nation will participate in the 28th annual “No Smoking Day” on 14 March, Ash Wednesday.

This year the British Heart Foundation has merged with the  “No Smoking Day” charity, to support anti-smoking events at thousands of venues across the UK.

According to The Director of Policy and Communications for the BHF, “by joining forces we can enhance the No Smoking Day campaign and extend its reach, helping more people to quit… for both organisations, the opportunities posed by this merger were too good to miss.”
