Walking Bus

Promoting wellness and well being amongst credit union personnel is just one element of NBCU's work in this area. The credit union has recently collaborated with a number of stakeholders in the community to establish a Walking School Bus in Loughrea town. The walking bus is a safe way for children to walk to school. It promotes regular daily exercise and it reinforces the habit of walking for shorter journeys. It  also good for the environment, resulting in less congestion and traffic, which ultimately means less pollution within the community.

Healthy people are the foundation for healthy communities and everyone has a role to play in promoting good health and well being at local level. Whether it is raising awareness about the importance of good health, or living or promoting healthy lifestyles, the sum or a large number of small actions can lead to powerful and impactful results.
