Leixlip Youth Project attend Irish Cancer Society’s X-HALE Youth Awards 2018

Leixlip Youth Project - full caption below

Over 350 young people from 45 youth and community groups around Ireland including Leixlip recently came together to showcase their anti-tobacco films and projects which they created to contribute towards establishing Ireland’s first smoke-free generation.

This is the eighth year of the X-HALE programme, a youth smoking prevention initiative of the Irish Cancer Society. The programme aims to de-normalise smoking and encourage young people to drive the movement towards a tobacco free generation.
