By Tessa Ogle, Managing Director of the Electrical Industries Charity

Every year, hundreds of people within the electrical industry do something incredible by helping the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) to not only provide vital assistance to those who are faced with the toughest times of their lives but also gives EIC an opportunity to make dreams come true by donating just £1 to powerLottery.

Every time someone like you donates £1 per month or £12 per year to EIC’s number one fundraising stream- powerLottery, EIC has an opportunity to be the first port of call for people like William Rhodes and his family. A nine-year-old, William is suffering from a rare genetic blood condition - Diamond-Blackfan Anaemia and requires blood transfusions every three weeks. William’s number one wish was to have a football pitch in his garden.

Thanks, to powerLottery, EIC fulfilled his dream by laying down an all-weather football pitch using artificial grass with floodlights in his garden, so William will be able to play football all year round together with his little sister and his friends.

William is just one out of hundreds of examples which highlights that without the funds that are generated from powerLottery, EIC would not be able to improve the lives of many more apprentices, pensioners, employees and their families.

So why not do something amazing by making the dreams of your industry colleagues come true by simply signing up to powerLottery today. For just £1 per month, you can become an everyday hero for those who are facing life-changing times and have no one else to turn to for that much-needed support.

All you need do to take part is download EIC powerLottery app on your Apple or Android device and tap the app to play and be in with a chance of winning up to 15 cash prizes between £50 and £1,000 each month. Every time you play powerLottery, 95% of your donation goes straight back into the pot that directly funds our industry members in need.
