The logistics company, based at Central City Industrial Estate, has won a string of national awards for technology and innovation, yet still works hard for local worthy causes, including the sponsorship of promising young athletes and charities.
Their recent annual charity football tournament helped raise funding for Zoe’s Place, a baby hospice which will offer 24 hour palliative respite and terminal car for babies and young children, helping to ease the pressure of responsibilities on the parents within the Coventry and Warwickshire area.
The charity already has two sites in Liverpool and Middlesbrough, with the third due to be completed on the site of Exhall Grange School in Ash Green, Coventry, in 2010.
Employees from ByBox’s national distribution centres were encouraged to attend and enter a team in the tournament, which was hosted by Nuneaton Town FC. Each player paid £10 to play and a raffle held with all prizes donated by ByBox employees.
Sue Beale, Head of H.R at ByBox said: "Everyone at the tournament had a great day, and we were delighted that we managed to raise even more money than we had anticipated.
"Zoe’s Place is a very worthy cause, and one we are happy to be involved with. Once built, this new hospice will help many families within Coventry and the surrounding area."
