My story

[p][img]http://dowdsgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Dowds-Group-Forty-for-40.png" height="99" width="245[/img][/p][p]Dowds Group are celebrating their 40th year in business in 2018. To celebrate this milestone we are hoping to raise £40K to distribute across four different charities. The four confirmed charities we have chosen for our campaign are Electrical Industries Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, Aware NI and Boom Foundation:[/p][p]Why - Electrical Industries Charity (EIC)?[/p][p][url=https://www.electricalcharity.org/][img]http://dowdsgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Untitled-design-55.png" height="123" width="123[/img][/url]EIC support the electrical industry with well-being solutions to transform and rebuild the lives of people by offering support programmes for apprentices, employees and their families and pensioner support. This a charity that is held close to our hearts, especially after the support they provided for the family of a former Dowds Group employee who sadly passed in 2014.[/p][p]Why - Macmillan Cancer Support?[/p][p][url=https://www.macmillan.org.uk/][img]http://dowdsgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Untitled-design-54.png" height="123" width="123[/img][/url]Macmillan have millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers and campaigners who give support, energy and inspiration back to individuals and families of those who have battled cancer. With support services throughout the UK including centres close to our three offices in Ballymoney, Belfast & London, we have all experienced in some way the help Macmillan can provide - we would like to take the opportunity to give a little back for the help they have provided to so many of us.[/p][p]Why - Aware NI?[/p][p][url=https://www.aware-ni.org/][img]http://dowdsgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Untitled-design-56.png" height="123" width="123[/img][/url][/p][p]It is in unfortunate fact that the construction industry suffers a higher incidence of mental illness than any other industry in the UK. As well as providing support services, AWARE deliver mental health and well being programmes into communities, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces. Dowds Group have worked with AWARE for a number a years, availing of their advice and guidance in the prevention and treatment of mental ill-health.[/p][p]Why – The Boom Foundation?[/p][p][url=http://theboomfoundation.co.uk/][img]http://dowdsgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Copy-of-Logo-%E2%80%93-Untitled-Design-3.png" height="136" width="136[/img][/url]The Boom Foundation is the only charity in NI supporting patients with Sarcoma. 50% of their money goes towards Sarcoma UK research and the other 50% goes directly to benefiting the patients - all their work is voluntary with no overheads. Our staff member, Carolyn McKiernan, experienced first hand the support and help The Boom Foundation offers and it is a charity Dowds Group would like to take the opportunity to give back for the support they provide to so many people.[/p]
