Businesses Join Forces To Support Local Charities

JMK Solicitors and CRASH Services, which both have offices in Belfast and Newry, have announced that they will be supporting both Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke (NICHS) and Air Ambulance NI over the course of the year.

The law firm and the accident management company already work closely together assisting clients who have had an accident, so joining forces to support two local charities who also help people in the aftermath of an illness or accident as their chosen charities for the year seemed a natural fit.

Maurice Hutchinson, Managing Director of JMK Solicitors said “Each year our staff nominate charities to support and we are delighted that they have chosen Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke and Air Ambulance NI”.

Jonathan McKeown, CEO of CRASH Services said “We are really looking forward to taking part in a range of fundraising events throughout the year to support these charities. Some of the team have already signed up for the Belfast Marathon and planning for our ‘Night at the Races’ is well under way”.

Steph Ellis, NICHS Corporate Fundraiser welcomed the new partners. “We are delighted that JMK Solicitors and CRASH Services have selected us as their charity for the coming year and we are looking forward to working with both businesses.

“Like JMK Solicitors and 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 £24,000 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.
