There are two healthy living initiatives taking place throughout the month of October.

The first is Stoptober which encourages smokers to ditch the cigarettes. For details on how to sign up visit www.nhs.uk/oneyou/stoptober/home.

The second is Sobertober which encourages people to give up alcohol for the full 31 days in order to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
