By Tessa Ogle, Managing Director of the Electrical Industries Charity

When you are faced with difficult circumstances in your life- whether you are caring for a loved one, have a serious illness or struggling with financial issues, it is important to have a strong support network around you.

Currently, there are 1.3 million people in the electrical industry who are working or have worked in the electrical or energy related sector. 130,000 of those people are eligible for support, 23,000 are non-working disabled people, 50,000 are pensioners, and 100,000 provide full-time care to members of their family. In total 330,000 people in our industry are in desperate need of a support network to help them to overcome the most challenging situations in their lives.

The Electrical Industries Charity is calling on the electrical sector to get fit this summer by joining one or all of its fantastic summer events.

Now it is your chance to re-live the 70’s disco days and have a truly unique experience by taking part in your very own strictly powerBall experience.

Saturday Night Fever became the prism through which the world viewed disco. In the tradition of the Strictly Come Dancing TV show, powerBall will be presenting you with a one- off very special and unique opportunity to take part in your very own Strictly powerBall experience at this year’s Friday Night Fever event.

Our EP Board is highly influential, meeting 4 times a year on the morning of the Trustee meeting to put forward key initiatives the Charity will undertake for the year.

The EP Board holds 2 voting positions on the Trustee Board and delivers a fresh perspective from our emerging leaders in the industry (people with less than 10 years’ experience).
