A HEALTH campaign targeting smokers has just been launched in Huddersfield.
The South Asian Healthy Living Partnership launched its Green Bus campaign, to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking.
The Green Bus focuses on communities in Thornton Lodge. It contains information points.
Also, members of organisations such as the Huddersfield Smoking Advice Service and Neighbourhood Learning Centre offer help on giving up smoking and related health issues.
Mahfooz Shah, project manager for the organisation, said:
"Because of the language barriers a lot of anti-smoking publicity and advice isn't understandable by some members of the South Asian community.
"They are sometimes unaware of the harm that smoking can do to themselves and their families."
The partnership plans to run similar events in Birkby and Lockwood soon.
Meanwhile, local anti-smoking campaigners have attacked the Government for failing to protect restaurant and pub workers from passive smoking.
Action on Smoking and Health says the smoke is a serious health hazard for thousands of bar staff and waitresses - and should be outlawed.
Campaign director David Reed said "These workers are suffering lung cancer and heart disease because of exposure to tobacco smoke where they work".
Yorkshire Ash says smoke-free places are becoming increasingly popular.
Its guide contains almost 50 Huddersfield cafes, restaurants, hotels and pubs that have adopted a no-smoking policy.
Many have reported an increase in trade since becoming smoke-free.
Mr Reed urged people who are trying to give up smoking to "stay positive and confident - and avoid temptation".
