On Wednesday 13 March 2013 Carshalton College took part in the National No Smoking Day.
Representatives from the College local chemist and Sutton Youth Service came into the College and spoke to students throughout the morning on the dangers of smoking. A video showing the damage smoking can cause was played in the College corridor for students and staff to see throughout the day. Students also dressed up in cigarette packet costumes to draw attention to the information on offer.
There was carbon monoxide testing available to see how much was present in the lungs, a ‘trash the stash’ box where students could bin their cigarettes in return for a healthy lunch voucher and the opportunity to make a pledge to state the day you will give up. The Student Support Services team received 28 serious pledges from students to give up during the next couple of weeks.
The College will continue to work with the local chemist and Sutton Youth Service to provide a stop smoking programme for our young people.
This week is Eating Disorders Awareness Week and B-Eat are using the week to spread the message that Everybody knows somebody – eating disorders are more common than you think. This serious mental illness is affecting someone you know right now – in your street, in your school, in your workplace, even in your own home. Over 1.6 million people in the UK are affected by eating disorders including people of all ages and backgrounds.
B-Eat are encouraging people to help the person they know whether it’s your girlfriend, a work colleague, your best friend or your brother – reach out, talk to them and offer support. The sooner someone gets the help they need, the more likely they are to make a full recovery.
Find out how you can get involved by visiting the B-Eat website. You can also click here to read a number of blogs from people who have beaten eating disorders.
During Eating Disorders Awareness Week 11-17 February 2013 we are spreading the message that Everybody Knows Somebody – eating disorders are more common than you think. Watch the video below and share it!
