|Giant snakes and ladders with a life-saving message|
Volunteers will spread the messsage that air pollution kills nearly 10,000 Londoners each year.
Air pollution causes illnesses ranging from eczema and itchy eyes to cancer and lung disease.In growing children exposure to air pollution stunts lung growth and affects life-long lung capacity.
What is less well known is that people most affected idling vehicles are the driver - or others inside the vehicle - with pollution levels up to 10 times that in the surrounding area.
At the engine idling action day these life-saving messages will be demonstrated with a giant game of snakes and ladders - while volunteers talk to any drivers sitting in cars with the engine running to alert them to the dangers.
It will take place outside Streatham Odeon 12-2pm on Weds 18th January. To take part or find out more visit: http://idlingaction.london/volunteers/
