My story

[p]In May 2021, I will be undertaking a mammoth cycling challenge of 335 miles over 5 days from Phoenix, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in aid of the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) and the over 10,000 people they support. [/p][p]This challenge will be no easy feat for a group of amateur cyclists but it is the cause which makes the feat so worth it. The EIC is an industry charity specifically for industry people. This means that whatever you may need or problem you may have as long as you have worked in the sector for 3 months the charity can support you. [/p][p]The EIC is a charity close to our heart at Hager, they have supported a number of our employees over the last few years and I would like to play a part in raising funds to support the ongoing good work that the charity does. I would also like to do this in honour of one of our employees, Paddy McCormick who sadly passed away in June 2019. [/p][p]Mental health is a growing concern and after recently completing my mental health first aid training we went on to roll out awareness sessions to all employees, this was delivered by the EIC and was greatly received by our employees.[/p][p]I am asking you if you can please donate to my challenge and support the work the EIC do. Any amount (either big or small) makes a difference and your support is so valuable to our sector, all of the proceeds that the EIC receive go directly back into the industry and will make a big difference to somebody's life.[/p][p]Thank you for your donation and I can't wait to tell you all about my adventure on Route 66![/p][p]I am delighted that the costs of the trip have been met and Hager UK have very kindly started my fundraising by sponsoring £4000. [/p]
