If you’re ready to give up and stop smoking there are many steps you can take towards a smoke free lifestyle. Whether it's cutting down, giving up for No Smoking Day on Wednesday 10th March, giving up for the week or taking a giant leap towards quitting for good, help is available.

On Saturday November 28th Hallam Street Hospital, our acute in-patient service for adults with mental health problems, held a Winter Festival fete to raise money for ‘out of hours’ activities on the wards. These are activities that people staying on the wards can do in the evenings and at the weekends. The fete was organised by staff members, service users and ‘experts by experience’ (people who have had their own experiences of using the service in the past and now act as consultants to the Trust).

Preparations are now beginning for this year's fete, and we’re also starting to see some of the excellent ways that money raised from last year's fete is being used to improve services for people on Hallam's wards. With this in mind, Carolyn Hurcom, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, and Michelle Young, Team Lead for Abbey House, thought it was a perfect time to thank everyone who freely gave their time and support leading up to and on the day of 2009's fete, and to whet people’s appetites for this year’s fete.
