CRASH Services, Northern Ireland’s leading accident management company, have announced that they will be supporting Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke (NICHS) as one of their two charity partners for 2019.
Jonathan McKeown, CEO of CRASH Services, said “Each year our staff nominate two charities to support and we are delighted to say one of these is NI Chest, Heart and Stroke.
“NICHS makes a huge difference to people’s lives across Northern Ireland and we are really looking forward a range of fundraising events throughout the year to support this work. Some staff members have already signed up for the Deep River Rock Belfast Marathon and we are planning for our ‘annual Night at the Races’ in the autumn.
Steph Ellis, NICHS Corporate Fundraiser welcomed the new partner. “We are delighted CRASH Services have selected us as their charity for the coming year and we are looking forward to working with them.
“Like CRASH, NI Chest Heart and Stroke also assists 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. We offer support to those living with life changing conditions and prevent others from becoming ill through our wide range of care services and health promotion programmes.”
With a calendar of exciting fundraising events and initiatives already planned, and if last year’s impressive total of £23,000 raised for charities is anything to go by then this year is already shaping up to be a very successful partnership which will significantly benefit local people across Northern Ireland.
