Devon to Dorset
There were a few sore legs and blisters when Team NAPIT took on the jagged coast from Devon to Dorset. They dominated the 50 km walk along the Jurassic Coast to raise funds for the EIC, and we can’t thank them enough for wearing out their trainers for such a great cause.
Paws for the Cause
Kevin Griffin and a diverse team of 50 pups, kids and walkers welcomed in June with the SELECT Presidents walk for the EIC. The energetic team covered six miles of the luscious Pentland Hills over four hours on a crisp Saturday morning.
It's a Royal Occasion
EIC President Stuart Mackenzie and CEO Tessa Ogle missed their invites to the wedding of the year at Windsor Castle, though just a few days earlier they had dined with Her Majesty in the picturesque gardens of Buckingham Palace. The Electrical Industries Charity is honoured and proud to be one of the charities that the queen is a patron of.
Barnsley Mastered the Peaks
Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough are three jaw-dropping peaks in Yorkshire. The 24-mile trek across them, which includes a 1,585 m ascent, was no match for the LEW Electrical Distributors Barnsley Team, who mastered the peaks in ten hours. As tough as the peaks were, the pain was overshadowed by the incredible views, great company and determination to support the EIC.
The Sky's the Limit
Steve Pope from CEF achieved a boyhood dream of jumping out an airplane not once but twice this spring. To get his money’s worth from a slower descent, Steve got his weight well below the limit. Over four days in Empuriabrava, Spain, Steve completed one tandem skydive jump and one solo skydive jump to raise money for the EIC and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Roll Up, Roll Up!
To raise money for the EIC, Aico put on a carnival family fun day extravaganza. The mild summer's day saw teams face off in the sumo ring, nerves tested in giant Jenga and the management take one for the team as they stepped into the stocks.
It’s a Black-Tie Occasion
EEL - Newquay hosted a lavish regional Summer Ball for their customers and employees. The evening saw gorgeous gowns, perfect bow-ties and dapper waist coats. During the course of the evening over £1,500 was raised for EIC .
The biggest ever Fegime Conference was held this year with 187 people in Barcelona. During the Gala Dinner Alan Reynolds held a "guess the venue" for 2019 Conference and raised £2,000 for EIC.
