Intrepid trekkers – Jess Kramer, Sarah Ryan, Nicky Davenport and Sandra Corrigan have just arrived home from a trip of a lifetime.
All four Bibby Ship Management (BSM) Isle of Man employees took part in the Bibby Line Group ‘Giving Something Back’ Dalai Lama Trek in India, in October. The five day trek saw the team reach an altitude of 3,500 metres, camping in some extreme weather, however with such a fantastic support crew keeping the team firmly on the ground the trip was a great success.
Months of training and hard work paid off as the team raised an amazing £6,800 for their chosen local charities – Hyperbaric Chamber, Manx Diabetic Group, IOM Sea Cadet Troop and IOM Hospice. The charities will benefit from the team’s wonderful achievement and it will make a positive impact on them.
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 up to 22 employees from across its diverse businesses taking part, with a total of 21 charities benefiting from over £35,000 which was raised.
