LIVERPOOL snorers are being invited to attend a weekend of therapy which is being organised by Helps Stop Snoring, makers of the first clinically proven remedy for the problem, together with the Innkeepers Lodge Liverpool South on Aigburth Road.

The most deserving cases from the area will be put forward for selection and could be amongst the first cadets to take their place at the army style boot camp. Alongside other snoring offenders from across the UK, the region’s worst culprit will attend the camp at a top secret location overseen by Helps Stop Snoring’s very own ‘Sergeant Major’.

There they will undergo a rigorous three-day grunt-busting course which will include advice from a leading Ear, Nose and Throat specialist along with a crack team of dieticians and fitness experts.

Graham Carr-Smith of Helps Stop Snoring said:- “We already know that the UK is a hotbed of snoring, so we are expecting interest and competition for places to be extremely high.  As part of any agreement to take part in the camp, our ‘Sergeant Major’ will inspect each guest’s bags for contraband items such as alcohol and cigarettes, both of which can exacerbate snoring. 

The aim is to provide as much advice and information as possible to the selected snorers and their families, helping them to reduce or stop the problem altogether. It’s going to be tough, but the results should be worth it.”

If you or your partner snore and would like to be apply to take part in the Snoring Boot Camp, please visit  and follow the online registration procedure. Alternatively, contact the Helps Stop Snoring ‘Boot Camp Hotline’ on 0845 270 1660.

As part of the Boot Camp cadets will receive 2-nights all expenses paid accommodation at the mystery location, along with a year’s supply of Helps Stop Snoring products to take away.

Application closes 31 July 2008.
