Appeal to assist the Dickinson family within EIC 2018 challenge

06 December 2017

Support for the Dickinson family is being requested within the Electrical Industries Charity's Challenge for a Cause in 2018.

One of the initiatives within this is trekking the Great Wall of China in September 2018 by Monika Gaubyte and Tracey Rushton-Thorpe of Keystone Communications.

Further information about the challenge can be found on the EIC website.

The trek by Monika and Tracey will follow the contours of the remote areas north of Beijing, including old sections of the Great Wall.

They aim to raise funds for Caz Dickinson and her family, after she spent 15 years working in the electrical industry for a wholesaler.

After suffering a coughing fit in 2009, she collapsed and was rushed to hospital where she was diagnosed with a Grade 4 brain haemorrhage, which had caused irreversible damage.

The Dickinson family has struggled without financial aid and lost their home in 2013, following Mr Dickinson's redundancy.

Tracey and Monika are asking supporters to donate £10 or more.

Those pledging donations before 18 December 2017 will be entered into the prize draw to win the handmade reindeer in the photo above.
