The electrical industry’s annual powerBall was held last week in the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, with attendees contributing to a fund of £260,000 for members of the electrical or electronic industries who are going through difficult times.
After addresses by powerBall chairman Roger Taylor and Electrical and Electronics Industries Benevolent Association president David Dennison, over 1,100 people were seated for dinner, which was followed by an auction, with a car on offer; cabaret; an acrobatic display; a salsa demonstration from the World Salsa Champions; and a show band.
This was the prime fundraising event in the EEIBA’s calendar and provided a springboard to the association’s centenary. The EEIBA is asking for donations to help elderly people who have worked in the electrical or electronic industry all their working lives, who are finding it increasingly difficult to cope.
