Donegal ETB’s Letterkenny Youthreach centre is calling on the local community for support ahead of the Irish Cancer Society’s national X-HALE Youth Awards 2018 in July.
Letterkenny Youthreach is asking people to log on to cancer.ie/xhale2018 and watch its short film about being ‘smoke free’. In the video, three learners share the life-changing benefits they experienced after quitting cigarettes. The film with the most views between now and 4 July will win the public vote and a national award as part of the X-HALE Short Film Competition 2018.
X-HALE is an initiative of the Irish Cancer Society that supports young people to tackle smoking in their communities and raise awareness about the dangers of smoking among their peers. The X-HALE Youth Awards national showcase event in the Helix, Dublin on 5 July will be the finale of months of hard work. This is the eighth year of the X-HALE Youth Awards. Forty three youth groups and Youthreach centres from around the country are taking part in 2018.
