UK Power Networks staff pile up the pounds for Comic Relief

Head and beard shaves, cake bakes, face painting, dress down days, pyjama days – and even men dressing as women - were all ways in which power workers raised money for Comic Relief.

UK Power Networks staff, from across the company’s offices in the three regions it serves, raised more than £2,800 for the charity which helps to change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.

UK Power Networks owns and maintains the vast amount of overhead power lines, underground cables that deliver electricity to eight million properties across the East of England, London and the South East.

Staff at UK Power Networks raise money for many different charities throughout the year and last year collected about £80,000 through fund-raising events across its offices.

Clive Steed, Head of Sustainability at the electricity company, said: “We’re encouraging our staff to ‘Do Something Funny For Money’ again this year to help change lives for the better.”

Comic Relief spends the money raised to help change the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa. The charity has raised more than £950 million for the cause. It was launched in 1985 when a devastating famine was crippling Ethiopia with the aim of making the public laugh while they helped those in desperate need.
