We are delighted to announce that Trade Skills 4U is the headline sponsor at the most highly-anticipated National Golf Championship of the year in the electrical industry.
The 4-ball tournament will take place on the 18th September 2018 at the iconic golf venue, The Belfry, host to Ryder Cup matches and steeped in golfing history.
We will be entering a team of 4 enthusiastic golfers to take part on the day to compete against other companies, all of whom aspire to win the coveted EIC National Golf Championship Trophy. The competition will take place at the Brabazon, titled one of the UK and Ireland’s top 100 courses by Golf Monthly, which is a must-play for all those serious about golf.
Carl Bennett, CEO said: “Trade Skills 4U are big supporters of the Electrical Industries Charity and are excited to be headline sponsors to support them. The National Golf Championship is a fantastic event for the electrical community to support giving us the opportunity to raise funds for those who really need it most, plus of course we get to play at the famous Belfry!”
A brighter future…
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Electrical Industries Charity who help those working within the electrical, electronics and energy community. They do this through the provision of four workplace programmes: Apprentice, Employee and Family, and Pensioner Support, and the Practical Participation Programme that give the industry access to financial grants and a comprehensive range of free and confidential services.
Thanks to the support of donors, sponsors, fundraisers and volunteers at events like these, the EIC are able to continue to support those that need help the most. Following an entertaining performance from Britain’s Got Talent’s Les Gibson on the night, the Charity team will be hosting a Grand Raffle and game of Higher or Lower to raise as much money as possible for EIC’s charitable efforts.
If you want to get involved, either by taking a team, or sponsoring the fundraising on the day, please contact Sarah.McKenzie@eictradingco.org

How many golfers does it take to change a light bulb? FORE!
We wish all those taking place good luck, and look forward to sharing how our team got on later in the year, with hopefully some good ‘shots’ to show you too.
We’ve been told that golf is a game in which you yell "fore" you score a six, and you write down "five", so if you’re playing a round soon - may the fours be with you!
I think that’s enough golf puns for one day!!
Finally, we would like to thank everyone involved in supporting this extremely worthy charity and hope that the day helps to raise funds to support those that need it most.
