LIME has once again stepped up as a spon­sor of the St. Lu­cia Jazz & Arts Fes­ti­val by con­tin­u­ing its sup­port of var­i­ous com­mu­nity events and ini­tia­tives. Fond d’Or Jazz, Jazz on the Square, Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege Jazz and Jazz at Blue Coral Mall are some of the events re­ceiv­ing spon­sor­ship sup­port from St. Lu­cia’s lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider.

LIME has con­trib­uted cash and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions as­sis­tance to all four events, in­clud­ing wire­less (Wi-Fi) In­ter­net ac­cess at venues, tents and ISDN lines to fa­cil­i­tate live ra­dio broad­cast of the mu­si­cal per­for­mances, along with other forms of tech­ni­cal sup­port.
