Central events are challenges organised for employees by the Giving Something Back team.
These annual trips are promoted to all employees across each of our businesses in the UK and overseas, with employees fundraising for charity to take part. Employees raise a minimum amount, and pay a registration fee before the event and in return Bibby Line Group pays for the challenge.
This is a popular part of our programme, offering fantastic once in a life-time opportunities to travel alongside other employees from across our businesses.
Previous international events have included treks in the Grand Canyon, Himalayas and Cambodia as well as volunteering to build community buildings in Brazil, Kenya and Nepal.
UK events have included treks along Hadrian’s Wall, the Jurassic Coast and the Lake District Four Peaks challenge.
No experience is necessary for these challenges just enthusiasm, motivation and the desire to take on a challenge for your chosen charity.
Join us on this breath taking trekking challenge as we explore the remote highlands of Iceland. Starting in the stunning region of Landmannalaugar, we trek for 55km over three days through lava fields, across multi-coloured mountains next to shining glaciers. From the bright lights of Reykjavik, to the tranquil warm waters of the springs and rivers come join us in Iceland on this long weekend challenge.
Join this fantastic challenge as we climb the highest mountain in England and Wales during the night! We will have the moon as our back drop, and summating at night brings a special
sense of achievement. Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory never forgotten! Descending, we will witness breath-taking mountain ranges before tucking into a delicious celebration breakfast!

Despite torrential rain and excessive heat, 19 adventurous Bibby Line Group colleagues embarked on the trek of a lifetime through the rice paddy fields, the muddy mountains and shady jungles of Cambodia – all in the name of charity. Over five days, the group trekked 85 km (53 miles), battling blisters and mosquitos to get to the finish line. Between them, the group raised an incredible £34,000 for their chosen charities.
