In our sector, hundreds of individuals show a random act of kindness every single day to thousands of their colleagues in need and you too can be part of transforming someone’s life by signing up to the Electrical Industries Charity’s (EIC) powerLottery for as little as £1 per month
powerLottery is EIC’s number one fundraising stream that allows EIC not only to show support to those who need assistance in the most challenging times of their lives but also to give hope, independence and life-changing solutions for people like Matthew Rimmer.
In 2015, Rimmer’s life changed forever when he suffered from a brain haemorrhage at the age of 48 which left him unable to walk, talk or continue leading the active life that he was used to. Since the devastating moment, He underwent brain surgery and to this date is missing half of his skull. As a result, he is suffering from a morbid personality disorder and no longer wants to get up or attend his therapy which would help with his recovery.
Rimmer’s challenges are far from over as recently he was diagnosed with heart problems and is now waiting for open-heart surgery. His family got in contact with EIC for assistance in purchasing an all-terrain wheelchair which would allow him to move freely not only indoors but outdoors too and would give Matthew some feeling of normality and motivation which is crucial for his wellbeing and recovery process.
Thanks to supporters like you who donated £1 per month to powerLottery, EIC was able to purchase the all-terrain wheelchair and give Matthew the independence he needed to continue on his road to recovery. He is now able to walk the dogs and enjoy a more social and independent life with his family and friends.
You can help to reshape many more lives like Matthew Rimmer by signing up to powerLottery today for as little as £1 per month or £12 per year. Simply download the EIC App and tap to play to be in with a chance of winning cash prizes of up to £1,000 each month.
