A group of intrepid trekkers from Bibby Ship Management in the Isle of Man have put their best feet forward to raise cash for charity during a trip of a lifetime.
Jess Kramer, Sarah Ryan, Nicky Davenport and Sandra Corrigan took part in the Bibby Line Group ‘Giving Something Back’ Dalai Lama Trek in India, in October, climbing to an altitude of 3,500metres and camping in some extreme weather.
However, with a fantastic support crew and months of training, the hard work paid off as the team raised an amazing £6,800 for its chosen local charities – Hyperbaric Chamber, Manx Diabetic Group, IOM Sea Cadet Troop and IOM Hospice.
Mark Robertshaw, Managing Director, of the Isle of Man office, said: “This is a significant achievement for the team and we’re proud of their hard work and dedication to such worthy causes.”
The trek was organised by the wider Bibby Group and involved 22 employees from across its diverse stable of businesses, with 21 charities benefiting from the total of over £35,000 raised.
