Central Events

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.

Case study: Cambodia 2017

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.
