`Fruity' time at hospital.

`Fruity' staff and patients took part in a national campaign aimed at cancer prevention.

Specialist nurses at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust who work with cancer patients and their families took part in Fruity Friday.

The campaign, which is supported by the World Cancer Research Fund, is aimed at healthy eating and lifestyle.

It tries to raise people's awareness about how sensible eating and frequent exercise can reduce the risk of cancer.

Staff in the oncology ward at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary were the winners of a trust-wide competition to organise innovative events to promote the campaign.

The ward's staff organised a fun day, which included guess the weight of melons and also mixed up healthy smoothies for people to taste.

Nurses received a cash prize, which is to go towards a social event.

A spokeswoman said: "All professionals involved in providing care and support for cancer patients and their families hope to raise awareness of cancer prevention measures."
