We caught up with our Technology Innovation Specialist, Joel Adams, on jumping out of planes to raise money for the David Lewis Centre.
How long have you been at LIMA and what is your role here?
I’ve been here for ten years, and I currently am LIMA’s Technology Innovation Specialist, which means I work to ensure that we remain a customer-focussed business, who are constantly aware of the ever-changing technology market. A crucial part of my role is working closely with customers to understand the increasing challenges that they face, and then developing our solutions to align with those real-world factors.
Tell us about the David Lewis Centre and why LIMA chose them?
In their own words, the David Lewis Centre provide ‘…outstanding education, residential, medical and therapeutic support for people with learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism.’
The reason why we work with them, besides the fact that we think it is a fantastic cause, is because we have built a strong relationship with them over the last ten years at LIMA, we’ve done everything from annual football tournaments together, to zip wiring from the top of the Imperial War Museum in Salford Quays – all in the name of charity! Our history with the charity has meant that fundraising for them again just made sense.
Why the Skydive?
Well, as mentioned earlier, we’d already done a few different charity events, and in order to raise enough money, we needed to up the adrenaline and top our previous efforts. We got together a team of ten and did the jump in Lancaster, it was a really clear day as you can see from the video below!
Is there still time to donate?
Absolutely, you can still donate to the David Lewis Centre HERE!
