Head of Corporate Sales and Services, Cicyln Joseph, who received the trophy on behalf of LIME, commented: “This award is well deserved and this is also a celebration of our first anniversary in November since rebranded as LIME. Our manifesto spoke about working in communities and creating a better place. Our community work is second to none in culture, education and the environment especially. I am proud to be receiving this award on LIME’s behalf and our company will continue to contribute significantly to make our community a better place.”
