Charity provides vital welfare support to those in the electrotechnical industry

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) offers support services to those who serve and have served within the electrical and energy industries. The assistance it provides is invaluable to those facing hardship.

The Charity relies solely on fundraising and appreciates every single supporter. Every week across the UK companies and individuals are coming up with great fundraising ideas to bring people together, learn new skills, raise funds and have fun in the process. You can tackle a fundraising activity as an individual or as a company and, whatever you decide to do, EIC has many ways in which it can support you.

Running for a cause

Following a fall at work in October 2022, Kieron found himself grappling with mental health issues during his recovery period. Kieron’s journey toward healing took an unexpected turn when he discovered solace in running, with his brother Michael by his side.

Kieron reached out to the EIC as he wanted to help generate awareness of the charity and the work it does. He was determined to help address the challenges faced by himself and his peers. By partnering with the EIC, Kieron has amplified his impact, recognising the importance of established support networks in tackling mental health issues. His journey isn’t just about personal growth and empathy, it’s a call to action for the entire community.

Kieron and his brother’s commitment to this new passion for running is leading them to participate in various races across the UK. Through their fundraising efforts, they aim to shine a spotlight on the vital work of the EIC. You can donate to Kieron and Michael’s cause here.
