Higgins Hollywood Deazley Solicitors are delighted to name Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke as their charity partner for 2017/2018. NICHS are a local charity who aim to prevent some of the most prevalent diseases affecting people in Northern Ireland and to provide care for those affected by these illnesses and their families.
We have planned a busy calendar of events over the two years to include a one million step challenge, staff bingo, a ticker tea party and the Belfast Marathon. We are hoping to raise thousands of pounds to enable NICHS to continue to provide vital services for local people in Northern Ireland.
We also look forward to working with NICHS to raise awareness of health in our workplace, in particular to help us adopt healthier lifestyles in order to reduce the risk of developing chest, heart and stroke illnesses in the future. Our first ‘lifestyle' event is a blood pressure clinic for staff which will take place in our office on Tuesday 28th March.
Watch this space for more details of our fundraising efforts and health promotion events throughout the year.
