Research released in December 2018 by Age UK showed that one in four people in the UK over the age of 65 are struggling financially, and nearly 1.2 million older people don’t receive the help they need with essential daily activities.
This means that almost 1 in 8 older people are unable to carry out all their essential daily tasks alone. Additionally, the same report revealed that, in the last year alone, 1.9 million pensioners were living below the poverty line.
EIC’s Pensioner Support Programme not only provides a safety net to thousands of retired colleagues within the electrical sector but also ensures that those who are faced with struggles during what’s meant to be the happiest phase of life are getting the support they need to lead a better quality of life.
With the touch of a button, you could play powerLottery and be in an excellent position to scoop one of the 15 monthly cash prizes ranging from £50 up to £1,000. Your £1 can go a long way in helping people in the electrical industry to overcome difficult times, allowing them to live a more independent and happier retired life.
Every year, through powerLottery - EIC’s number one fundraising stream - the Charity is able to provide essential support to thousands of elderly colleagues who are struggling to make ends meet. Its Pensioner Support Programme (PSP), which is part of EIC’s Employee Assistance Programme, is fully funded by powerLottery.
It’s quick and easy to sign up - all you need to do to take part is download the EIC powerLottery app on to your Apple or Android device and simply tap to play and be in with a chance to win big while doing something incredible for people in your industry. The best thing about powerLottery is that each and every time you play, 95% of your donation goes back into the EIC’s pot to fund those industry members in need of help.
