2019 is a special year for Gibsons, as it marks 100 years since they first began trading as a British, family business back in 1919. To celebrate this momentous milestone, the Gibsons team have been undertaking the #Gibsons100 challenge, which encourages them to take part in a challenge or act of kindness to commemorate the 100 years of Gibsons and raise money for children’s charity, Jigsaw4U.
Last weekend, 3 generations of the Gibsons family abseiled all 100ft of Peacehaven Cliffs in Sussex. Michael and Kate Gibson together with her 9 year old daughter and 10 year old nephew took to the cliff with other friends and family. The #Gibsons100 Challenge has raised over £1500 to date for Jigsaw4U.
Kate Gibson, Managing Director comments, “This was a huge challenge for me, and I had to dig deep to conquer my fear of heights, but taking on the challenge alongside my Dad and daughter was a huge comfort. I am so proud of our team who have shown what it means to work together for a common goal raising money for Jigsaw4U, a wonderful charity that helps children and young people put the pieces back together by providing bereavement counselling and supporting those who have been affected by crime.”
