Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) ran an informative workshop for over 20 Love4Life members.
Jasmin and Mark, Customer and Community Advisors for SSEN, gave a fantastic workshop on lots of different things, the most important being their Priority Register.
The Priority Register is a service for anyone with a disability, an elderly person, or someone with a health condition who might be vulnerable when there is a power cut. SSEN are quick to respond to people on their register and put them at the top of their list for communication and support during a power failure. They might be able to provideÂ a generator to a care home, or even some food and drink if the power is off for a long time.Â Most importantly they will look out for people on the register if the need arises.
Many members of the Love4Life project hadn’t heard of the priority register and signed up there and then.Â Everyone got a goody bag to take home and we all agreed that it had been a really interesting and informative evening.
SSEN are fantastic partners of FitzRoy’s Love4Life.Â This year they are entering two boats into the Portsmouth Dragon Boat Festival. A huge thank you to everyone involved!â
Jim Apted, Community Fundraising Coordinator
Our members engaged in activities such as spotting the hazards in a home, the stages of where power came from and what happens during a power cut, which they all really enjoyed.
Jasmin and Mark delivered a fantastic workshop that left all the members leaving happy and knowledgeable. A great big thank you from all at Love4Life to SSEN for the hard work they put into the workshop and their dedication to their fundraising efforts too.â
Hayley Ostler, Love4Life Project Coordinator
We have teams from our Portsmouth and Petersfield sites and they are already getting quite competitive as both teams will be vying for glory come race day!Â Of course we are thrilled to be able to help raise funds for people who benefit from Love4Life and it is brilliant to see first-hand what a difference this project makes to so many people.Â It has also been a great opportunity to spread the word about the support SSEN can provide.â
