‘Kick the Habit’ – 6 a-side Football Tournament
Separate research commissioned by the NHS in 2009, the Health Development Agency (HDA) in 2001 and the “No Smoking Day” Charity in 2009 has put smoking rates for Kurdish men at anywhere between 50% and 68% as compared to an average of 22% nationally. Spring Bank Tigers FC working in conjunction with ARKH, plan to tackle this particular health inequality in our local area by promoting participation in competitive sports via a centrepiece 6-a-side football tournament.
‘Kick the Habit’ will bring together players and spectators of Kurdish football from across the region to enjoy a competitive tournament with an underlying health message based around the beneficial effects of stopping smoking.
‘Kick the Habit has been funded sported. the leading UK sport for development charity – empowering community groups to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people through sport.
The tournament will take place at the University of Hull Playing Fields on Sunday 26th August (off Inglemire Lane). Matches will commence at 2pm
