Bibby Line Group celebrated TWO awards at the 2019 Echo Regional Business Awards on 20 June at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.

The 212 year old, Liverpool-based company picked up the Outstanding Charity Support Award, honoring the 10 year commitment to local communities as part of the Giving Something Back Programme which has to date donated over £10million to charity.

In a surprise final award, Sir Michael Bibby also won Business Person of the Year Award for an unprecedented second time, honoring his commitment and investment to the region as well as his legacy of setting up the GSB Programme in 2007 – the company’s bi-centenary year.

Vicki Wyllie, BLG CSR and Events Coordinator said:

“We are really pleased and proud to accept this award on behalf of all Bibby colleagues – past and present – and for their passion and commitment to the Giving Something Back programme over the last 10 years. Long may it continue!”
