The strength of the relationship between Business Micros and Sliders UK was perfectly illustrated when Ian Longbottom, Sliders UK’s Chairman arranged for Nick Bailey from Business Micros’ installation team to tick a giant challenge off his bucket list and complete a skydive from 15,000 feet.

C-Licensed skydiver Ian heard about Nick’s ambition while he was working on the installation of the Evolution and EvoNET software, and decided that a charity skydive with 60 seconds of free fall would be the perfect way to cement the partnership between the two businesses.

Nick completed the skydive recently with a tandem instructor at Black Knights parachute centre near Lancaster, jumping out of the plane just after Ian and his skydiving team had made on of their regular jumps.

Nick said: “I’d like to thank Ian and everyone at Sliders UK for making this happen. It was terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time, but as soon as I landed I did want to do it all over again.”

The skydive raised £350 for the Children’s Heart Foundation thanks to support from Nick’s colleagues and friends at Business Micros.
