Age UK - LIMA is extensively engaged with Age UK having donated PC’s to their local branch, Critchley House, re-cabling the office and providing training on technology and releasing one of our graphic designers to help to produce a brochure for their annual report. We invited their Salford based spokesperson to speak at our 20th Anniversary dinner, raising £1250 for them on the night.
Staff sponsored walks - Several LIMA employees from a range of teams took part in sponsored walks across Manchester and Cheshire during 2017. These walks raised funds for the Alzheimer’s Society and Mind - Mental Health. LIMA also matched all funds raised from friends, family and colleagues, doubling everyone’s charitable donation.
The next step project - LIMA organises an annual Christmas collection to aid the Next Step project, a Salford based charity that supports young people and families leaving care to acquire the skills they need to live independently. LIMA staff purchase and donate toys, essentials and non-perishable goods to support families.
PAPYRUS - LIMA’s 20th anniversary celebrations raised £1,250 to support PAPYRUS, a national charity that works to prevent suicide in young people. PAPYRUS delivers awareness and prevention training, also providing confidential support and suicide intervention. LIMA will continue to support PAPYRUS in 2018 through fundraising activities.
The David Lewis centre - LIMA supports the David Lewis Centre, a charity that provides exceptional education, therapy, support and life skill development to individuals with epilepsy, autism and complex learning disabilities. LIMA staff give their time each year to actively fundraise for the David Lewis Centre in a variety of activities such as sponsored zip wire events, skydiving and participating in their 6-a-side football tournament.
Walkden High School Salford - We sponsor Walkden High School’s Year 10 and 11 football and rugby teams, supplying them with strips as well as supporting them by buying a kit for their Spanish tournament at Villarreal.
