Power NI makes EPIC donation to church group

A fun-filled activity day for EPIC (Everything Possible in Christ) members has been made possible after Power NI gave a £300 donation through its long-running charitable initiative, Helping Hands.

EPIC is a Newtownards-based church group that supports those pupils who are preparing to make the transition from primary to secondary school – or those who have already made the step up. Formed seven years ago, it currently has ten members and two leaders who coordinate events.

The money was awarded after Gail Carr – a Power NI employee who has personal ties to EPIC – put its name forward for Helping Hands support. With her nomination successful, the £300 paid for a group activity day where new and current members had the chance to get to know one other.

This took place at Ganaway Training and Activity Centre in Newtownards, with wall climbing and archery, and laser clay pigeon shooting a few of the indoor activities they experienced on the day.

“This sponsorship provided us with an exciting opportunity to organise a team building event,” explained Gail. “It allowed members to bond in a fun way and it encouraged new friendships that will continue to grow throughout the remainder of their time in the group and hopefully beyond.”

Andrew Carr – Key Leader at EPIC Youth Church Group – added: “The £300 from Power NI was a very generous contribution to an adventurous team building event. It allowed us to create a fun-filled bonding experience for the teenagers and leaders of our youth group. It was another great experience that everyone really enjoyed, and benefited from, so thank you very much, Power NI.”

Power NI’s Helping Hands has been operating now for a number of years now and in that time individuals, groups and organisations have benefited to the tune of many thousands of pounds.
