The Electrical Review team was honoured to partner with the Electrical Industries Charity powerBall, held on Friday at Grosvenor House, London.
The charity's mission is to look after all people from the electrical and energy industries whenever they, or their families, need help with life's challenges, whether big or small, at every stage of their lives.
The charity dates back to 1905 when The Electrical Trades Benevolent Institution was set up by ten leaders of the emerging electrical industry who felt a duty to help those in the industry in the event "accident, infirmity, misfortune or old age, limited their activities or curtailed their means".
The charity changed its name to EEIBA (Electrical and Electronics Industries Benevolent Association) in 1967.
In 2014 the new name – the Electrical Industries Charity – speaks of a more connected and energised organisation at the heart of its industries, delivering practical support and bringing the industries together to help their own. The Electrical Industries Charity offers a range of services to support people in our industries.
We look forward to hearing how much was raised on this spectacular evening!
