MAILBOX IS AWARDED AS ONE OF BIRMINGHAM’S FAVOURITE PLACES TO ‘TAKE A BREATH’

The survey, commissioned by the Taskforce for Lung Health, invited local residents to name their favourite city location where they can enjoy their own breathing space as part of an awareness campaign around lung health.

The ‘Take a Breath’ campaign first launched in Birmingham in July 2021 and following its success, the Taskforce is undertaking more local activity in the city to help build the public’s understanding of lung disease and the importance of good lung health.

Winterbourne House & Gardens, a unique heritage site and botanic garden on the University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston campus, was the most popular choice with 28% of the vote. This was followed by city locations Cannon Hill Park (17%), Birmingham Botanical Gardens (15%), canal-side at Mailbox (6%), and Birmingham Library, a new entry for 2022.

The top five nominated locations have been awarded a celebratory plaque to mark their position as one of the city’s top breathing spaces. In July, the Taskforce will also launch a new downloadable city map highlighting walking routes between the top spots so Birmingham residents can explore their city in a brand-new way this summer.

The Taskforce for Lung Health is encouraging people in the city to look after their lungs, as well as increase their understanding of the challenges faced by the 1 in 5 people in the UK who live with lung disease. People take on average 25,000 breaths a day, yet good lung health is something that can often be taken for granted.
