Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) has raised an incredible £13,228 for Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke and MindWise through our ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’ campaign.

The initiative enabled all three organisations to work together to promote mental and physical well-being amongst NIFRS staff and the wider community.  Core to many of the fundraising events, which took place throughout the year-long campaign, was raising awareness of the importance of keeping both your mental and physical health in good shape.

The initiative was spearheaded by NIFRS Charity Champion Firefighter Noel McKee, from Whitla Fire Station, who has since retired from NIFRS. Noel is pictured with (l-r) Eastern Area Commander Aidan Jennings, Jackie McCaughey from Mindwise and Connlaith NiRaifearlaigh from NICHS presenting the cheque to both charities on behalf of NIFRS.

Over the course of the partnership, MindWise delivered more than 20 mental health awareness raising talks to Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service teams, promoting the importance of keeping your mind healthy and helping staff to recognise signs of mental ill health.
