PRESS RELEASE: Take on a life-changing challenge

The Electrical Industries Charity is calling on the industry to get together and join their Challenge for a Cause campaign to help transform the lives of the Dickinson family.

Through its Challenge for a Cause, the Charity plans to raise £250,000 to purchase a house and work with industry partners to carry out any renovation work which is required to safeguard the future of Caz and her family.

As part of their Challenge for a Cause campaign, the Charity is set to take on the Arctic Adventure in 2018. So far, the Charity has 20 enthusiastic participants who are taking part in this once in a lifetime opportunity with the aim to show their support and raise vital funds for the Dickinson family. The Charity has raised £10,169 of their £250,000 goal and is currently looking for more participants to take part for this worthy cause.

There are many different ways where you can get involved and make a significant difference in someone’s lives. For example, you can join the Charity’s very own Managing Director, Tessa Ogle on the Arctic Adventure which takes place between 8-12 March 2018, where you will have an opportunity to experience cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and husky-sledding while helping the Charity to reach its fundraising goal.

You can also help the Charity to raise the roof for Caz and her family and make a long-lasting donation by sponsoring one brick at a time for only £25 for the Charity’s Raise the Roof campaign.

A personalised brick will allow you to put your name on this extraordinary project which will serve as a long-lasting tribute to you, or your sponsors and donors and your engraving will stay intact as long as the brick does. If you are a UK Income or Capital Gains taxpayer, don’t forget to add a Gift Aid to your donation. Gift Aid will allow the Charity to reclaim £0.25p for each pound you donate, which means that for each brick worth £25, the Charity will be able to claim £6.25 in Gift Aid at no additional cost to you.

No matter how big or small your participation is, it can have a significant impact on someone’s life. Join the Charity on this extraordinary challenge today and help the Dickinson family to have a happier future ahead.
