The Powerlottery is the Electrical Industries Charity’s (EIC) number one fundraising stream which offers everyone in the industry a fun way to support the charity while having a chance to win a cash prize of up to £1,000. Entrants can choose to purchase between one and 10 numbers each month to increase their chances of winning at the cost of £1 each.
The lottery draws provide the charity with 30% of its annual income which is directly handed out in financial grants to the industry through the charity’s programmes, such as the Pensioner Support Programme, therefore each time you play you will be able to support a great cause.
The Pensioner Support Programme is one of the charity’s four programmes, which is focused on providing a support network for the electrical sector’s retired colleagues and their families. The programme provides pensioners with financial assistance whether this is paying for household bills, debts or unexpected expenses. It also offers retirees and their families support services including will writing assistance, legal advice, telephone counselling, debt advice, support for carers, financial assistance and grants as well as providing a way for them to connect with their retired colleagues.
EIC managing director Tessa Ogle comments: “Powerlottery is one of the best ways to help the charity to transform the lives of our colleagues who are in need. For as little as £1 you will be able to make a huge difference in someone’s life while having a chance to win one of 15 cash prizes.”
