A Derry-based community cycle group in Northern Ireland is now benefitting from a brand new ‘rescue rucksack’ defibrillator’ thanks to the generosity of a local business. The Bogside and Brandywell Health Forum’s (BBHF) cycle group, which runs every Saturday, was enabled to buy life-saving equipment through a grant funded by Power NI.
The community-based health forum offers a holistic approach to health and wellbeing in the community, schools and in workplaces. “Our cycling sessions cater for all abilities and participants and are led by two facilitators at each outing. We wanted to secure a defibrillator that could be carried by a leader on his or her back during their cycle journeys”
