My story

[p]In March 2022 I will be undertaking one of the biggest challenges I have ever put my hand to! [/p][p]Over five days I will cross the Finnish wilderness in sub-zero conditions all in support of our industry charity - The Electrical Industries Charity. [/p][p]The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) are a charity specifically for industry people. That means the EIC look after anyone who works within the electrical or energy sector whether you are retired, an apprentice, a relative or an employee. Think of the EIC as a charity which can assist with almost every issue from every walk of life, the only qualification you need to seek assistance is to have worked in the sector for over three months. If you know of the EIC you will understand some of the incredible things they do. If this is your first-time hearing of them here’s just a little list of some of the cases the EIC have.[/p][p]1. Freddie, a two-year-old boy, undergoing chemotherapy and his family are receiving financial aid from the EIC and have enjoyed a trip to Peppa Pig world, Freddie’s favourite place funded by the EIC.[/p][p]2. Retired couple the Smith’s, who had worked on a regional electricity board, now have a warm house after the EIC helped to fund a new central heating boiler.[/p][p]3. Emma, who suffered with addiction and anxiety, is now on the road to recovery after the EIC sourced and funded both a counsellor and a rehab facility.[/p][p]These are just some examples of the over 10,000 people the EIC help each year. It is because of the incredible work they do to support our sector that I am heading to the Finnish wilderness. [/p][p]I will be testing my skills with ice fishing for my supper, building an igloo to sleep in and crossing terrain with only skis – all in freezing temperatures. [/p][p]If you can, please donate to my Arctic Adventure, any amount helps and support my journey to support the EIC and the incredible work they do.[/p]
