The Irish Electrical Benevolent Association (IEBA) had a full house for its annual Winter Ball, held late last year.
Guests at the event were asked to make a donation to the Seán Cox recovery fund and did so generously. Seán, a Director at Precision Cables, was the victim of a vicious attack before a Liverpool game in April 2018. The attack left Seán with life-changing injuries that will require ongoing and intensive long-term care and support. That care will also prove costly and that’s why the industry has been so proactive in rallying round and organising various fundraising initiatives to ensure his care is continued.
The industry was very well represented at the IEBA Winter Ball. In total, €3,2250 was donated to the Seán Cox recovery fund. Chairman Cel O’Reilly asked guests to send their best wishes to Seán through message sheets at each of the designated tables. Over 150 personal get well messages were bound together in a beautiful book, which was presented to Seán’s wife, Martina, by Cel.
The SupportSeán campaign has gained widespread support and the recent IEBA-organised Ball is just one of a range of fundraising events. The IEBA wants to thank all industry members who have rallied to Seán’s cause and contributed on the night of the ball. Other industry events that have been organised to support Seán also show how much respect he has garnered in the industry. It’s also a great example of how the electrical Industry is a wonderful family to be associated with and how it supports its own through associations like the IEBA and others.
