LEW pledges commitment to Electrical Industries Charity

LEW Electrical Distributors has committed to raising a minimum of £1,000 for the Electrical Industries Charity in 2018.

Fundraising got off to a great start with LEW’s generous staff donating £945 at their annual staff party last month (March).

All of LEW’s 11 branches will be taking part in fundraising events this year. The first LEW branch to get involved is Barnsley, whose staff will team up with several good willed customers to conquer the Yorkshire Three Peaks. Training has already begun for the Barnsley team as they prepare for the 24-mile walk, which includes 5,200ft of ascent.

Fundraising for the Three Peaks challenge has got off to a great start with more than £430 already collected, taking LEW’s accumulative total to over £1,300 with plenty of fundraising activity still to come.

Managing Director, Andy Johnson, said: “The EIC is a fantastic charity that puts a great deal back into the electrical industry to help families and individuals when circumstances have taken an unexpected turn and, in many instances, have life changing consequences.

“The industry has provided LEW and its staff with so much over the years; knowing there is a charity there to support any of us and our industry friends in the hardest of times is a great comfort, and it’s a cause we are more than happy to support.”
