Campaign end - Help kids thrive - don't smoke and drive

Here's the final chance for ten lucky winners to claim their £10 shopping vouchers after displaying car stickers highlighting secondhand smoking dangers to children.

With your help Boston Borough Council has been spreading the word that smoking in cars with children present is against the law and could seriously harm children's health.

A sticker for drivers to put in their car windows was handed out to all borough primary and nursery schoolchildren and has also been available at various locations throughout the past year. These stickers were displayed in the rear windows of cars and if your car was spotted displaying this you were entered into a draw every week for 52 weeks.

Prizes of £10 shopping vouchers were claimed weekly as people were notified every Wednesday on the Boston Borough Council website, Facebook page and Twitter feed, and also published in the Boston Target and Boston Bulletin.

Schools which helped promote the campaign were also entered into monthly draws for £50 book tokens.

This week is the final week for your chance to claim your £10 shopping voucher. If one of the registration numbers below is yours then all you have to do to claim is bring your vehicle registration document to the reception desk at the council offices in West Street.

Final ten winning registrations are YB04 JVN, BK55 HYF, FV55 LRA, KH04 DVC, MJ07 MKO, FN02 AWC, KS57 JFJ, YG58 WFV, FV02 KWS and LB59 ZHD.

Boston's lead officer for smoke-free, Ann Alexander, thanked the borough's primary and nursery schools for helping spread the message. "We've seen a lot of these stickers in cars over the last year - people have really got on board and supported the campaign.

"Although the project is now officially over, we still have a few unclaimed prizes and would encourage people to pop in and claim their vouchers.

"We hope drivers will continue to display the stickers in their cars to emphasise the message that smoking with children on board is bad for their health, as well as being against the law."
