I’m delighted to hear that Bibby Financial Services Liverpool raised £8,000 for the Woodlands Hospice in Aintree. They did this with the help and support of their local business network, which is a fantastic achievement.
The Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust was set up in 1991 in order to raise the necessary funds to build and run the Woodlands Hospice. The trust and hospice were set up because local GPs, nurses and hospital staff felt there was a need for care and support for those with life-threatening illnesses in North Liverpool.
Giving back to the local community
We have strong ties to Liverpool – our parent company Bibby Line Group began trading in Liverpool in 1807, and we still have a significant presence in the City with an office on Duke Street.
Bibby Line Group’s unique Giving Something Back scheme encourages employees and customers to support hundreds of local causes that often struggle for funding. As at August 2014 the scheme has raised more than £7.5million for a range of charities, which is incredible.
As we move towards 2015, we’ll continue to take our corporate responsibility seriously and I look forward to finding out what my teams have in store for the New Year.
