In 2023, the Sibbald brand celebrated a significant milestone: 50 years of unwavering commitment to excellence in business. Throughout this landmark year, our dedicated team embarked on a journey of philanthropy, uniting in support of three cherished charities. We engaged in various fundraising initiatives, including a 50K walk/run, a challenging Ben Nevis Hike, weekly 50/50 raffle draws, and an unforgettable Anniversary Dinner & Auction.


With the collective effort of our team and the generous contribution from the Sibbald Family, we accomplished a remarkable feat, raising an astounding £45,000. This substantial sum was distributed equally among our three esteemed charity partners, each representing causes close to our hearts.


The Lighthouse Club- Construction Industry Charity, a beacon of hope in the construction industry, received a portion of our donation. Renowned for their provision of holistic support encompassing emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing, the Lighthouse Club plays a pivotal role in nurturing the welfare of the construction community and their families. Our longstanding association with this indispensable charity reflects our enduring commitment to social responsibility.


Strathcarron Hospice, our second beneficiary, was chosen with profound consideration. Recognized for their exceptional provision of specialist hospice and end-of-life care, Strathcarron Hospice extends compassionate support to individuals facing life-limiting illnesses. Our contribution of £15,000 will significantly bolster their invaluable services, covering the costs of a day's operation across Forth Valley, Cumbernauld, and Kilsyth. Moreover, our engagement underscores our dedication to enhancing healthcare accessibility and promoting research and education in palliative care.


Lastly, our heartfelt connection with SCBU – Special Care Baby Unit at St. John's Hospital in Livingston spurred our support for this vital cause. Inspired by the exemplary care provided to the daughter of one of our directors, Iona, during her premature birth eight years ago, we sought to reciprocate the kindness bestowed upon her family. By funding the creation of a new virtual tour for families, we aim to alleviate the anxiety and uncertainty often experienced by parents and caregivers in such challenging circumstances.


In commemorating our 50th anniversary through acts of kindness and generosity, Sibbald reaffirms its enduring commitment to making a positive impact in the community. As we reflect on our rich legacy of integrity and compassion, we look forward to continuing our journey supporting local charities and causes for the good of the community in the years to come.
