Business of the Week: Smovey

 

smoveyLOGO hiyh registered rgb

 

Smovey was invented by a man who has Parkinson’s and it was only through the improvement of Salzhans quality of life that it was made into the commercial product it is today.  This amazing award winning, health and wellness tool has so many benefits for everybody, not just people with neurological conditions but it particularly helps people by:

 

  • Increasing mobility and circulation
  • Reduces pain in the body
  • Reduces freezing episodes for people with Parkinson’s
  • Reduces anxiety and stress
  • Improves balance and coordination
  • Improves digestive system
  • Strengthens bones, helping reduce osteoporosis
  • Strengthen muscles, core body and much much more

 

Irene Treacy has been working closely with Parkinson’s Ireland and has spoken at their Dublin meeting to over 200 members recently and travels around the country to Parkinsons meetings doing workshops and demonstrations. Smovey has also proven to be extremely beneficial for people with MS and Strokes as a lot of the symptoms have similarities and can be helped greatly with smovey.

 

"I just love the feeling of smovey when I get a full body massage with it and it definitely has helped me imporve my strenght after my stroke." - Nora Goodwin, Tramore.

 

"The smoveys have really helped me in my rehability, I use them every day for 10 to 15 minutes and has without doubt helped with my balance and helped recover my core strenght after my stroke in October."  - Jimmy White, Waterford.

 

"The smoveys have helped me enoumously in my recovery and help with the pain relief and I hightly recommend them" - Pat Flavin Tramore.

 

Please see video below of Niall and Siobhan from Cork whom Irene met in Lanzarote last year. Niall has been using the smoveys for 12 months every single day and his improvement has been so remarkable that his nerologist has asked to see him again personally in 3 months time as to make such an improvement is so unusual. Please check out www.smoveyhealth.com for more personal testimionals.

Guinness World Record Attempt

 

SOLAS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT POSTER

 

As summer has arrived the Solas Cancer Support Centre is encouraging people to be aware that skin cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland and the most preventable. Over 10,000 new cases are diagnosed in Ireland each year and these numbers are increasing steadily.

 

To raise awareness on the importance of sun protection and how different skin types responds to the sun the Solas Cancer Support Centre is attempting to break a Guinness World Record for ‘The most people applying sunscreen’. This record was set in May 2014 by the Ann's Hope Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, with 1,822 participants.

 

Tracy McDaid, Manager of the Solas Cancer Support Centre is very optimistic that this number can be surpassed - ‘We are encouraging people on the 1st of July to come out and help us break this World Record and in doing so raise awareness about the risks of skin cancer and how important it is to know your own skin type. We are very fortunate to have amazing support each year from the people of the South East in funding our service and we are asking people to register online to join us on the day and set a record that will be hard to beat in the future’

 

For more details or to register to take part in this free event please go online to www.solascentre.ie. The event is taking place in WIT Arena, Carriganore, Waterford on Saturday 1st July 2017 and participants will need to arrive at 10am. Once registered you will receive details about the event and you must bring this confirmation email with you on the day. Only preregistered participants will be able to take part and as the record asks that participants must apply their own sun screen for 2 minutes we ask that children taking part be over 5 years of age.

 

The Solas Cancer Support Centre offers free cancer support to those affected by cancer, their families and carers in the South East. These services are available in their centre at Williamstown in Waterford City and in their West Waterford service based in the Alternative Health Clinic in Dungarvan. For details on these free services visit the website- www.solascentre.ie

KBC extends deadline for €200,000 Bright Ideas funding for community and business groups

 

KBC Bright Ideas 3

 

13th June 2017: KBC Bank Ireland announced that there are just under four weeks left for community groups to apply for funding through its Bright Ideas programme after the deadline for applications was extended to 30th June 2017. This year KBC has doubled its KBC Bright Ideas support fund to €200,000 and launched a new scheme for Ireland’s leading social innovators and entrepreneurs.

 

KBC’s Business Bright Ideas will assist for-profit organisations in the business of having a positive impact on a city or community by addressing a particular social need.

 

Following a judging process a top award of €50,000 will be granted to the winning applicant who can show how the funding will help have a positive impact on communities. A total of €100,000 will be shared among the top entrants.

 

KBC’s Bright Ideas community support initiative returns for a fourth year to support individuals and organisations which are transforming and improving the lives of others in their locality. KBC is calling on community groups across the country to apply for financial support for their dream projects from a second fund of €100,000. In addition, ten winners will be selected by KBC’s judging panel to enter a public vote for Ireland’s ‘Brightest Idea’, with an additional €5,000 funding reserved for the overall winning project. More than 400 community projects applied to KBC’s Bright Ideas for funding last year.

 

The Bright Ideas initiative has awarded over a quarter of a million in funding provided to 120 community projects to date. With enquiries still pouring in, KBC is giving community and business projects until 30th June 2016 to submit applications for funding.

 

The applications submitted to date show that community and business groups are asking for help to fund projects that can improve social inclusiveness, assist farmers through technology, improve financial literacy and make accessible travel easy.

 

Encouraging community and business groups to apply this year, Aidan Power, Director of Customer, Brand & Marketing at KBC Bank Ireland, said:“The response to Bright Ideas from community and business groups right across the country has been great, so much so that KBC has decided to extend the deadline for applications. This year we launched our Business Bright Ideas fund and our team of Business Bright Ideas judges are particularly eager to hear from social enterprises, for- profit organisations that have the potential to positively impact a city or community by addressing a particular social or community need. The clock is ticking until the closing date of 30th June.”

 

Applications to KBC’s Bright Ideas can be submitted through the bank’s easy to use online portal at www.kbcbrightideas.com. Applications for 2017 are welcome until 30th June 2017 from innovative community and business projects based anywhere in the Republic of Ireland.

  • Where possible, eliminate the hazards or reduce the risk e.g. can roof-mounted equipment be placed at ground level or can guardrails be provided to protect workers from falling?

  • Co-operate with other designers, PSDP and PSCS;
  • Take account of any existing safety and health plan or safety file;
  • Comply with directions issued by the PSDP or PSCS;
