CRASH Services along with JMK Solicitors are organising a Night at the Races for their 2019 charity partners – NI Chest, Heart and Stroke and Air Ambulance NI. This event will be held in the Canal Court Hotel, Newry on Friday 27th September (8pm start) and everyone is invited to attend.
Jonathan McKeown, CEO of CRASH Services, said “Each year our staff nominate two charities to support and we commit to raising as much funds as possible for them. Both charities make a huge difference to people’s lives and we are delighted to be able to support their causes.
We have already raised nearly £10,000 since the start of the year but the Night at the Races is the highlight of our charity events. Whatever is raised is match funded by the business.
NI Chest Heart and Stroke
NI Chest Heart and Stroke assist people at what can be a very difficult time in their lives. The latest statistics show that almost 1 in 5 people in Northern Ireland is living with a chest, heart or stroke condition. They offer support to those living with life changing conditions and prevent others from becoming ill through a wide range of care services and health promotion programmes.”
Air Ambulance NI

The service brings urgent medical assistance to anywhere in the province, operating seven days a week for 12 hours per day. The helicopter can get to anywhere in Northern Ireland in approximately twenty-five minutes.
This Doctor / Paramedic service benefits those whose lives are at serious risk following significant injury or trauma. Effectively the service brings emergency hospital care direct to the casualty.
