Colin Mullan, Managing Director Find Insurance NI, said: “We are really proud to announce our support of Foyle Search & Rescue campaign, as a locally-owned, Derry based Insurance company with over forty staff, we are delighted to be able to support this amazing charity who have saved so many lives and helped educate people on the dangers of entering the water of the river Foyle – one of the coldest, fastest flowing rivers in Europe.”

“It’s known as the fourth emergency service, but they are often the first responders when an incident occurs.  When we are tucked up in bed, these folk are out Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm until 3am, with an on-call Emergency Response Team operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!”
