To add to the fun, a racing tipster will be there to keep all guests in on the action. Why not come on down, whether you want to test your luck or just have a great day out. Golf The annual IEBA Charity Golf Outing, which was to take place on 24 April at Killeen Castle Golf Club has also been postponed for now, and the Golf Committee plan to reschedule the outing when possible, so the IEBA can continue to raise funds for all the hard work it does throughout the year. With your help, awareness and support the IEBA can continue to assist those less fortunate in the electrical industry in Ireland through the current crisis. www.irishieba.com

EICElectric Lunch 2020

A drian Logan has compered more than his fair share of functions. So when the former UTV sports presenter says he has seldom encountered the generosity of spirit on show at the 2020 Electric Lunch it’s worth noting. The annual event, organised by the Northern Ireland branch of the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC), brought together close to 250 like-minded individuals from across the island of Ireland. Gathered in Belfast’s Europa Hotel, they were on hand to support the EIC’s designated charity for 2020 - Support for Brain Injury Campaign. EIC Managing Director, Tessa Ogle took centre stage to explain the aims of the latest charitable effort by the industry, and to introduce a touching video focussing on someone from Northern Ireland who has directly benefitted. Assaulted on a night out and left in a coma, Parr Group employee Stephen Ennis and his family were given essential emotional, practical and

financial support by the EIC. To date more than £250,000 has been raised and distributed to worthy causes by the EIC’s Northern Ireland Committee. That total was added to significantly by those in attendance in Belfast. With the man affectionately known as Logie stirring up the crowd, a staggering £19,000 was raised by raffle and auction, with a feature being the decision by several winners to immediately hand back their prize for re-auction. Adrian Logan and guest of honour Liam Beckett MBE, the former Irish League footballer turned author and television pundit, had the crowd in stitches with their witty repartee. Throw into the mix some fine food (and the odd glass of vino) and once again the Electric Lunch proved why it continues to be such a popular part of the electrical industry’s social calendar.
