We are delighted to announce that Bank Of Ireland staff will be donating 12 more defibrillators to Community First Responder groups in 2017.
This is part of a commitment by Bank of Ireland to donate defibrillators to CFR schemes nationwide in 2017, following on from successful programmes in 2014, 2015 & 2016.
The 2017 donation was made as part of Bank of Ireland’s, “Be at Your Best” programme where staff hosted a number of fundraising activities including a “Couch to 5k Run”, a Trek in the Dublin Mountains, and various other health related activities.
Across the different events thousands of employees took part and arising from the fundraising success, the Bank made the decision to continue their support of Community First Responder schemes in 2017, given the valuable, life-saving role played by CFR trained volunteers with access to defibrillators in their local communities.
Bank of Ireland are making two of these defibrillators available at the Respond 2017 Conference to be raffled between any/all start up Community First Responder groups attending Respond 2017. If you are not there you can’t win!
Many thanks to the Management & Staff of Bank of Ireland.
