NI Chest Heart and Stroke x Linwoods Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break

(NICHS) 75th Anniversary year and the charity is calling on people to help them celebrate by hosting a Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break.

The Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break initiative is supported by leading local health-food brand Linwoods and involves supporters choosing any date in June to host a Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break get-together in their home, workplace or community group.

When they sign up to the initiative supporters will receive a fundraising pack containing a bag of Linwoods cold-milled flaxseed and a recipe card to help them whip up a batch of tasty breakfast cupcakes for their event. The cupcakes can even be decorated with the custom-made NICHS 75th Anniversary cupcake toppers which are also included in the pack.

Nadia Duncan, Events and Marketing Manager at NICHS says; “Many people in Northern Ireland are fans of a cuppa and a catch up for a good cause so hosting a Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break is the perfect opportunity to get family, friends or co-workers together to kickstart their day the right way, whilst helping over 335,000 people living with a chest, heart or stroke condition across the country.”

Nadia continues; “We are asking our Heartfelt Healthy Morning Break hosts to try and raise £75 from their get-together. As part of NICHS’s Care Services we deliver our Post Rehab Exercise Programme (PREP). PREP is designed to provide additional support to people who have had a stroke after their statutory rehab has ended. It aims to help people with rebuilding their lives and gaining confidence following a stroke through a combination of education and physio-developed exercises. £75 would pay for a Physiotherapist to provide one hour of therapy at a PREP group.”
