Electrical Industries Charity’s powerBall 2017 was a night of great support for the Raise the Roof campaign, which saw hundreds of industry professionals altogether and digging deep.

Raise the Roof – ‘One brick at a time’ aims to raise 250,000 to supply a hose for the Dickinson family and work with those in the industry to carry out renovation to ensure safety and a future for Caz Dickinson and her family.

At powerBall, many industry professionals donated hundreds of pounds each to the Electrical Industries Charity for personalized bricks – which will include the names of guests and will be incorporated into Caz’s home –serving as a tribute.

Companies got involved with the project by offering a range of products and services that will help with the safeguarding and renovations to ensure Caz’s future independence.

Contributors include: Collingwood Lighting and Zumtobel Group who donated lighting for the whole house, a voice lighting control system by Saturn LED and a specialist bathroom suite by Selco with bathroom sanitary ware covered by Wolseley. Heat Mat, Heatrae Sadia and Baxi have the heating covered while Rexel, Schneider Electric and Hager helped out with the wiring.

Importantly, Kidde Safety have taken care of the smoke, heat and CO alarms with the help of Aico, who have supplied a full security technology enabled care system. Further donators include Grafton Group Plc/Electricbase, Glen Dimplex Kitchen Appliances, CEF, Eland Cables, Synecore, SCV Electrical Limited and finally, Edmundson Electrical.

Managing Director, Tessa Ogle, said of the event: “We would like to thank all of our supporters who have kindly donated to our Raise the Roof campaign. Without you, we would not be able to help those who are in need of our support.
