Vent-Axia helps raise awareness of lung disease with Breathe Easy Week

British fan manufacturer Vent-Axia is supporting Breathe Easy Week 13-19 June 2016, which focuses on lung health and is run by the British Lung Foundation (BLF). Every year the BLF holds the event which is designed to highlight the widespread effect of lung disease which affects about one in five people in the UK.

The theme for this year’s Breathe Easy Week is ‘breathlessness’. Millions of people ignore being out of breath in situations where they would not expect to be, like taking a short walk, unaware that it is one of the most common symptoms of lung disease. This Breathe Easy Week, the British Lung Foundation are encouraging anyone who experiences this kind of unexpected breathlessness to visit their GP.

“Vent-Axia is delighted to be supporting Breathe Easy Week this year. The British Lung Foundation’s aim is that one day everyone will breathe clean air with healthy lungs. At Vent-Axia we support this and are committed to helping to achieve this by providing effective, energy efficient ventilation to help provide good indoor air quality in our homes,” says Jenny Smith, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia.

The BLF’s Breathe Easy support groups will be holding events across the country to help raise awareness of lung health and offer support. With 230 Breathe Easy support groups around the country, people can locate their nearest group and see what they are doing by visiting the BLF’s Breathe Easy website:
