The Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation
The Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation is dedicated to providing free cardiac screenings and education for young adults in Merseyside and the Wirral. Tim Cogley, an apparently fit and healthy 34-year-old from Heswall, England, suffered a fatal heart attack in April 2017. Despite showing no symptoms, Tim had a 75% cholesterol blockage of the left descending coronary artery. The Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation was set up by family and friends in Tim’s memory to offer free heart screening to those aged 18 to 40 within the Merseyside area, an age range where little heart screening currently is offered.
Townland Boxing Club
The Townland Boxing Club in Glenavy was founded in 2008 by a group of dedicated people interested in the sport of boxing and improving youth facilities in the area. The amateur boxing club, which is a completely voluntary organisation, was opened with a purpose to give young people in the area a place to meet, form friendships, learn the discipline, respect and skill required to become an amateur boxer, and of course look after their health and wellbeing.
Did you know 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem each year? Anxiety and depression are the most common mental disorders and overall prevalence of mental health conditions in Northern Ireland is up to 25% higher than in England.
Thank you to all Randox staff for their enthusiastic fundraising efforts which raised over £14,000 for our AWARE NI and Mind Your Mood. Staff got involved with abseils, skydives, Dragon Boat races and many other events to raise this fantastic sum.
