Here at EMF we think it’s very important to support locally and this is why we work with a range of businesses and organisations to help Cork grow. Some of our members are owners of these businesses and others are charities and campaigns we feel are a fantastic cause for the community. All in all we want to help grow Cork as a whole and spread positivity between local businesses.
Da Silly Heads
Da Silly Heads

Da Silly Heads Is a Cork born mental health focused initiative to help individuals with any issues they may be having. They work with various businesses and organisations that aid people who struggle with their mental health. Michael and Dan the founders use cartoon characters to help tell their stories of their own struggles with mental health, how they felt and what they do to cope.

Defeating Diabetes

Defeating DiabetesDefeating Diabetes is a program that we ran with pharmacy first plus. This program was aimed at helping those who suffer from diabetes by getting them regularly active and with the help of Keith from pharmacy first plus we were able to track some health markers which could be assessed after the program. The intervention allowed us to show individuals that physical activity can help their physical and mental health while suffering from diabetes.

Captain Corona

Captain CoronaCaptain Corona was a Cork phenomenon. At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic there was fear and worry amongst the people, toilet paper shortages, empty streets and no gyms. Captain Corona came to the rescue for many people. He delivered essential pharmaceutical supplies to high risk patients to Blarney and surrounding areas, he roamed the streets spreading positivity and happiness to homes and he went above and beyond to provide socially distanced physical activity to children and adults alike throughout the Cork area.
