Hyndburn MP's appeal to swap cigarettes for savings
11:23am Friday 15th March 2013 in News
AN MP is calling on smokers to swap cigarettes for savings.
Hyndburn MP Graham Jones spoke out in support of National No Smoking Day yesterday.
He said: “The average 20-a-day smoker could save £7 a day, £49 a week, £210 a month, and £2,555 a year if they quit.
“Like everyone else supporting National No Smoking Day, I would like to encourage thousands of smokers in the area to ‘swap fags for swag’ by quitting.
“As part of the campaign I am supporting the annual health campaign, run by the British Heart Foundation, which shows how smokers could treat themselves to all sorts of ‘swag’ if they quit.”
