Have you got the balls to stop smoking?


Leicester Hockey Club are extremly happy and proud to support the Balls to Stop in its second year, a unique stop-smoking campaign run in partnership between the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust Stop Smoking and Soar Media.

The Balls to Stop campaign uses the power of sport and recognised sporting personalitlies to promote the benefits of stopping smoking, alongside the support available through the Stop Smoking Service, available for free across Leicestershire and Rutland.

Boxing hero Rendall Munroe, and World Cup-winning former Leicester Tiger Neil Back have pledged their support to Balls to Stop for a second year, and they will be joined by former Leicester City and Northern Ireland international defender, Gerry Taggart (below) as Balls to Stop ambassadors for the 2014-15 season.

In addition, Balls to Stop has teamed up with us, Leicester Hockey Club and Leicester Storm Rugby League Club, with both becoming Community Partners

As an incentive to stop smoking, Balls to Stop will be offering individuals the opportunity to win ‘money-can’t-buy’ experiences, courtesy of the campaign’s sporting ambassadors and partners.

Leicester sports marketing agency Soar Media will assist Balls to Stop in the production of a series of promotional videos and case studies, alongside the provision of public relations and social media support.

Earlier this month Lauren Turner and Jessica Hickman spoke with Soar Media about how important it is for people to get on board and stop smoking, watch what else they had to say here.
