Students from Witchford Village College have made a film urging smokers to seize the day and stub out their cigarettes this January.

The video supports the Public Health England's National "˜Health Harms' campaign that capitalises on people's seasonal motivation to make healthy changes.

The students are taking part in Kick Ash, a countywide campaign led by young people who are proud to be smoke free. The students who are all aged 14 and 15 volunteer their time to become Kick Ash mentors. They take part in a variety of activities, including working with younger children about the dangers of smoking, with Camquit, Cambridgeshire's Stop Smoking Service, and Trading Standards with their business visits.

Ed Ouzman (age 15), a student at Witchford Village College, said: "We hope by making this short video we will encourage people who currently smoke to try and quit this January. We are all proud to be smoke free and hope this video encourages other people to become smoke free too."

Brigitte McCormack, from CAMQUIT, said: "The mentors have worked really hard organising the filming and producing this video. It's great to have such passionate and committed students who are prepared to volunteer their time to create pieces of work like this. Without them Kick Ash wouldn't be the success that it is"
