Three Bibby Distribution employees have been recognised for their dedication to supporting good causes as the logistics specialist and its parent company celebrates raising more than £10m for charity.
In 2018 alone, more than £331,000 was donated to 140 charities by Bibby Line Group through a combination of employee fundraising and matched giving as part of the company’s ‘Giving Something Back’ initiative, which began in 2007.
At the company’s annual charity awards in December, honours were given to Bibby Distribution’s Admin and Finance Manager Michaela Wright, for Outstanding Achievement; Transport Administrator Amy Pugsley, for Outstanding Volunteering; and Business Systems Developer Benn Adu-Opoku, who was highly commended for Outstanding Innovation.
Michaela, who is based at Head Office in Liverpool, has personally raised more than £45,000 to help communities in Africa since the matched funding programme started 11 years ago, taking part in a range of events including rowing 26 miles on the River Thames.
Amy, who is based at the Blunham depot, focused her efforts closer to home, helping more than 100 families in Biggleswade source school uniforms for their children. And Benn, who is based in Liverpool, had an idea to arrange a work football match between two of the Group’s companies to raise money for Children In Need.
John Cresswell, CEO Bibby Line Group, says: “Our colleagues are truly inspirational. When I listen to their stories and their amazing efforts to help local communities by raising money and volunteering for charity, I am immensely proud.
“As a company that prides itself in working in harmony with our communities, we are keen to encourage and harness this passion and give something back to the good causes our colleagues care about.”
