Throughout 2017 and 2018, we teamed up with the Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke and the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service to deliver the, “Healthy Body, Healthy Minds” campaign. Healthy Body, Healthy Minds raises awareness of the importance of keeping both your mental and physical health in good shape.
The initiative enabled all three organisations to work together to promote mental and physical well-being amongst Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service 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.
Healthy Body, Healthy Minds was spearheaded by NIFRS Charity Champion Firefighter Noel McKee, from Whitla Fire Station, who has since retired from NIFRS. A whopping £13,228 was raised for MindWise and the Northern Ireland Chest, Heart & Stroke.
