At BIC Innovation we are very proud of our colleague Tom Lomax, who is a volunteer crew member for the RNLI at Moelfre, who regularly answers mayday calls to go and rescue others. Often it’s just ordinary people, like you or I, enjoying a day out with family or friends when things suddenly turn serious and we call on RNLI lifesavers for help.
150 people drown in UK and Irish waters every year. And this summer, thousands of people will get into danger by the water. Ordinary people enjoying days out with family or friends. It happens so easily, and it could happen so easily to one of us or to someone we love.
To make sure that lifesavers like Tom have the kit and training that they need, they need our help in raising funds. That’s why at BIC Innovation throughout the month of May, we will be taking part in the Mayday Mile challenge to raise money towards saving lives.
We’re attempting our Mayday Miles in a number of ways; walking, paddleboarding, stair climbs and biking. And, as we love a challenge here at BIC Innovation, when we signed up for the Mayday Mile, we asked ourselves “How can we make it harder?” The solution? Let’s do some of our miles up and down the three flights of stairs in our new offices! And we did…here is the evidence!
