Following a planning process that began in late 2011, the CRS tonight began safety patrols in the area around the River Lagan in Belfast City Centre. This is the first step in an ongoing process to provide assistance to those in difficulty in that area. The CRS Belfast Unit is currently leading the way in providing this service in support of the police and other emergency services with the support of CRS members from around the province. For more information regarding volunteering for the CRS please visit our 'join us' page.

Wristbands for sale on behalf of the Joby Murphy Memorial Fund

Phillip Morgan from Belfast CRS has commissioned special wristbands to help raise money for the Joby Murphy Memorial Fund. The first 200 have already been sold and we would like to thank everyone who has made a donation. The bands are inscribed with the words 'Life isn't tied with a bow but it's still a gift' and Phillip explained that this was the last thing that Joby posted on his Facebook page before the tragic loss of his life. Inside the band is printed with 'Joby ze meerkat' as these little animals were a favourite of Joby (see photos). Phillip has more bands on the way and all CRS members are encouraged to get in quick and get some for themselves, friends and family. If you would like to purchase wristbands please text or email Geordie, let your Unit Commander know, or contact Belfast Unit direct on their Facebook page. A minimum donation of ?3.00 per band is appreciated.
