From the British Lung Foundation website – 12th June 2017
‘Breathe Easy Week’ is an annual awareness event, focusing on lung health.
This year, Breathe Easy Week takes place on 12-16 June 2017 and we’re going to be talking all about air pollution and clean air.
Our support groups will be holding events across the UK – at supermarkets, shopping centres and in their local communities. Find your nearest group to find out what they’re doing.
Each year, Breathe Easy Week raises awareness of lung conditions and helps to fund our life-changing research and our important support and campaigning work. If you are a BE group and will be having an event, let your Group Support Officer know and sign up for a resource pack.
It is shocking that poor air quality has contributed up to 40,000 early deaths a year across the UK. It’s an invisible danger that hits hardest people with a lung condition, children and the elderly.
