Our Heritage: 2007
Bibby Line Group celebrated its Bicentenary in 2007. A year long calendar of events took place with three main streams - fundraising, volunteering and celebrating.
The company launched a £1million sponsorship deal with a youth charity and offered match funding for all money raised for any charity chosen by employees. By the end of the year,£1.2m was donated to over 350 charitable causes.
During 2007 the business also acquired a majority stake in the growing retail fascia group Costcutter. This move supported the Group in achieving a £1bn turnover for the first time.
