Ulster Garden Villages Ltd (UGV) has funded a new project – the Cancer Focus Northern Ireland Keeping Well van – which will travel around greater Belfast and Co Antrim, bringing health checks and cancer awareness sessions directly to workplaces, sports and community groups.

The health checks include blood pressure, pulse, blood sugar, carbon monoxide monitoring for smokers, BMI and a body composition analysis.
