Students at a Dagenham secondary school held a coffee event to raise awareness of an anti-smoking campaign.

The group from The Warren School, Whalebone Lane North, Chadwell Heath, are taking part in the Cut Films competition, run by the Deborah Hutton Campaign.

The contest, supported by the Post and its parent company Archant London, aims to get young people to make two minute films about the dangers of smoking.

Here Hannah Cherifi blogs about the run up to the coffee morning, held on March 15.

“Last week we were really busy planning our coffee afternoon event to raise awareness for the Deborah Hutton Campaign and to get the message across how very dangerous it is to smoke.

“We produced a PowerPoint including Deborah’s story and other hard hitting facts about smoking.

“We were also selling raffle tickets all week and will be doing so all of this week to raise money for Cancer Research.

“We really want to raise a lot of money for such a good cause.”
